Room 5 Zoo Trip

21st September 2020

 

Dear Parents and Whanau,

 

Earlier in the term Room Five made a collaborative effort to write a letter to FOS to ask for some assistance to enable a trip to the Wellington Zoo.  FOS were happy to help us with our plan and the Board of Trustees has given us their approval.  This is very exciting!  We are all very appreciative of this wonderful support.

 

We will be heading to the Wellington Zoo, by bus, on Friday 13th November.  We will be participating in a variety of activities at the zoo.  We also plan to stop at Pukeura Bay on the way home.  This is  to observe living creatures in their natural habitat as a contrast to what we would have seen at the Zoo. 

 

We have planned to take 11 adults on this trip to provide adequate supervision for students.  If we receive higher interest than we have allowed for, parents are welcome to make private arrangements and come along in their own vehicles or organise a car pool group. 

 

If you are interested in coming along with your child/children please fill in the form below, click the link or scan the QR code before the end of the term, as police vetting will need to be organised and this takes time.  

 

Other details regarding our trip will be sent out early term 4.
