WOW! My Year 2/3 class from Glen Osmond Primary School had an absolutely amazing time visiting our Year 2 pen-pal class at MAS. We were absolutely flat out the whole time, and exhausted when we got home, but we all agreed that we had a trip to remember for ever!
Some of the first day highlights for my students included:
- Stopping at Pt Wakefield PS for recess
- Meeting our pen-pals
- Holding baby goats and lambs and seeing the pigs, sheep and steers.
- The sausage sizzle and movie night.
Our last day highlight was visiting the Linke farm. Paul, Letitia , Ollie and Tommy told us all about how a farm is run throughout the year and things they need to do to put a crop in, look after it and then reap it and send it off to the silos. They showed us inside their shearing shed and demonstrated how the electric shears worked. We also really loved the scones they made for us for recess. Thank you so much for sharing with us!
We would also like to thank the staff and students at Maitland Area School, especially Mr Andrew Gravestocks, Star Derrington and Sarah Townsend for looking after us, sharing the Ag Block and letting us stay in the PAC.
We look forward to keeping in contact with our pen-pals and hopefully catching up with them again sometime soon.
