Trip to Quarry and Native Bird Recovery Centre

Term 3 - 21st September 2010
We had an action packed day out, and ventured to both The Quarry and the Native Bird Recovery Centre. The clay class gave all children an opportunity to have a hands on experience of touching and working with clay, to see inside a kiln, and have their own creations fired. Along with viewing the gardens, the tranquil environment, the interesting buildings and variety of impressive clay sculptures.
We then went to the Bird Recovery Centre to observe birds and wildlife, and visit the injured birds that are being cared for there as they are now unable to survive in the wild. We were presented with a lot of information about birds and animals, incuding the albatross and the kiwi. Also some of the threats to our wildlife, such as traps and other animals. What an exciting and eventful day!
