Term 3 off to a great start

posted 31 Jul 2018, 21:41 by GMS Board

Term 3 has stated off with much talk about how the children spent their holidays. It is lovely to hear all their stories, as children enjoy speaking about things most memorable to them. The children continue to enjoy their interactions with the animals, and are learning the responsibilities that come with having them. There is a roster for the cycle 2 and 3 classes of various duties that need to be done on a daily basis, such as feeding, grooming, maintenance of fences and paddocks and the collection of animal droppings for sale as a fundraiser. But most of all, the children continue to grow in their love for the animals, and there is a genuine gratefulness that we are so privileged to have them as part of our school. This is evident in the time they spend with them, bringing Diego and Chip carrots from home, and taking time to even visit them after school.  The children have been very excited to welcome our latest arrival; a friend for Diego, named Milo. We believe they will prove to be good companions to each other.
