Last Wednesday, the Year 6 class was privileged to attend School’s Eco Day at the Central West Livestock Exchange. It was a beautiful, sunny day which helped to make all the varied outdoor activities run really smoothly. The students joined with several other local schools and they were all divided into six groups. They then rotated through six activities throughout the day until each one was completed.

Aboriginal storyteller, Larry Brandy, showed the children some of the tools and weapons that the Wiradjuri people used to hunt with. He even had the students engaged in some drama! In another group the students learnt how to recycle an old teeshirt into a useful bag. However, the highlight of the day for everyone was the opportunity to see and learn about our most dangerous snakes as well as handle very tame pythons.

The whole event was very well run and a wonderful experience for our students.
