Students visit wildlife park
Year 3 students from Umina Beach Public School have had the opportunity to go to Walkabout Wildlife Park for an excursion.
The first activity was a ranger walk which taught the students about bush tucker and bush medicine.
During the walk, the students met a frightened emu and ate termites.
They experienced seeing a banksia tree and tried the nectar.
The Year 3 students learnt about bush medicine and the use of the Sydney Bloodwood Tree.
The students got to see different animals in the park including emus, sheep, koalas, wallabies and a peacock.
They learnt about dingoes, flying foxes, snakes and echidnas.
