Our City Trip

On Friday Rooms 1,2,3 and 4 hopped on the bus and headed to the city centre. Room 1 started at the Imagination Station where we made lego challenges and worked well in our teams. Next, we walked the the Cathedral Square and looked at the damaged buildings and had our lunch. After that, we walked to the Museum and explored the Paua House, the cave and the old street. Later on, we headed upstairs and looked at the animals and the big globe.

We all had an awesome day and would like to say a big "thanks!" to the parents who helped us.
