P365 – Day 285 – excursion (12/10/2011)

Juniordwarf’s class went on its first excursion today.  A bus trip to a nearby wildlife sanctuary, Bonorong Park.

The school asked for parents to go along and help out, and I decided to volunteer.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from a day with 40 or so kids, other than that there would most likely be a fair amount of noise, and a lot of coordination would be required to make sure everyone was where they were supposed to be!

It was a lot of fun. The kids were very well behaved, and they had a great time.

I’m glad I went. I enjoyed the chance to talk to some of Juniordwarf’s classmates and to share their excitement at seeing all the animals. It was the first time I’d been there, and I’d like to go back another day to show Juniordwarf the areas that we didn’t get to see today.
