Year 9 Camp Update: Day 5

Aren’t we just absolutely blessed with fauna and flora across Australia?! Today we ventured out to Currumbin Sanctuary, which has been conserving native wildlife and nurturing the local indigenous heritage for over 70 years and served as a haven to a myriad of native Australian animals — big, small, flourishing and endangered. After the wild skies free flight bird show, we wandered the sanctuary grounds to interact with all things furry, feathery and scaly. Currumbin also serves as a rehabilitation Center for injured animals, and so we also learned the importance of how we can positively impact the environment around us through reduction of plastics, sustainable fishing practices and responsible pet ownership. A highlight for many included kangaroo, koala and lorikeet feeding, check out the grins on our faces! Our return journey has just started, and we can’t wait to see our families back at Mooroolbark campus in around 24 hours. Updates will be provided via Compass and Facebook about our time of arrival tomorrow.
A massive thanks to Mrs Dew for all her hard work and planning for trip!
