Support unit students enjoy arboretum
Support unit students from Ettalong Public School enjoyed an excursion to the Pearl Beach Arboretum on May 29.
"The day began with early morning glimpses of swamp wallabies and the loud laughs of kookaburras welcoming our students to the arboretum," said principal Ms Lynn Balfour.
"This is where our students thoroughly enjoyed the sensory experience of learning firsthand the sights, smells, sounds and textures of the local native bushland and wildlife in our local environment."
This was followed by dip netting in the Green Point Creek, a guided walk on the rock platforms investigating all the creatures in the rock pools and creating plaster casts in the sand.
"We had beautiful weather for a beach picnic and the chance for students to play on the beach."
