Last Wednesday, 45 students and 4 teachers braved the Sydney rain and spent the night with the animals of Taronga Zoo.
We had the park to ourselves and after a BBQ dinner we met some of the Zoo's residents. We had up close and personal meet and greets with a range of reptiles, including: tortoises, white-lipped green tree frogs, shingle backed lizards and the spotted python.
Then we braved the rain for an exclusive night tour around Reptile House and the African Waterhole with our keeper guides. It was truly an amazing experience that most people will never get to have.
The next day we had another special behind-the-scenes experience at the Bird Show. We got to meet some of the stars and learn about how the show is organsied, from bird training techniques to feeding and the logisitics of getting 45 birds ready to perform!
Our students' behaviour was incredible and they furthered BWPS' positive reputation within the community.
A special 'thank you' to Mr Brannigan for organising this amazing camp and to Mr McKendrick, Mrs Floyd and Ms Goodman for attending.
