Year 9 end of term excursion to Kuranda Rainforestation Nature Park: We started off our excursion with an Army Duck tour through a section of the rainforest, for all students and staff who attended this was a first-time experience and it was wonderful to see the reactions and surprises when the army duck went from land to water. Our tour guide shared information about the ecology of the rainforest including plant uses and animals and also gave opportunities for the students to ask all sorts of questions. We looked at the ‘wait a while’ tree and were very happy to not ‘take a sample’ for study purposes. When then engaged in a Pamagirri Aboriginal Dance and Dreamtime experience. Students watched dances from the traditional custodians and then had an opportunity to throw boomerangs and spears. It was great to see every Year 9 student have a go at throwing a boomerang, even staff had the opportunity too! We then had lunch and walked through the Koala and Wildlife Park; there were wallaby’s, tree kangaroos, wombats, reptiles and two big salties. We got to see one being fed! The students said they all had a great time and have asked to go back again but to spend more time on the Army Duck! ... See MoreSee Less
