A Visit to Intaka Island
On Wednesday the 17th and Thursday the 18th of February, the Gr 6 pupils visited Intaka Island in Century City. It is a fascinating place as it is situated right in the heart of Century City amongst all the buildings. It is a natural wetland that has been looked after through all the development around it. It is a place of sanctuary for the birds. We took a trip around the wetlands by boat, learnt about alternative sources of energy, and had the opportunity to learn more about our local bird population. A place of great beauty amongst the concrete jungle, we recommend you visit the island yourself!
The grade sixes were lucky enough to begin our year off with an awesome outing to the beach. We spent the morning at Small Bay and we were spoilt with incredible weather and a very low tide.
Besides frolicking in the waves, most of the children enjoyed a walk out to ‘the island’ with Mr Walker and Mr Stone. An incredible time was had by all, including the teachers.
Unfortunately not all of our days can be spent like this but it has certainly set the tone for the year. It was wonderful to have an opportunity to get to know one another and to just have fun.
We are all excited for the year ahead. Here we come, Grade Sixes of 2015!
