A very excited Class 2 set out on a bushwalk on the last Friday of Term 1 with Class Teacher Jamie Loftus and parent volunteers. It was perfect warm and sunny autumn weather as they made their way along paths and tracks in Castlecrag down to the harbour, singing merry songs, counting and spotting many little treasures. After lunch at 'Crab Beach', the children learnt from Jamie how to find crabs and handle them safely, which led to proud and excited calls of "Jamie, look - I found a big one!"
They hiked further around the harbour to Northbridge Baths, where the children happily met their waiting parents. Jamie ended the school day with the class saying their afternoon verse in a nice grassy spot with water views. A social gathering was then hosted by the class parents, and all enjoyed a lovely BBQ picnic and free play time. The children and adults alike had a memorable afternoon, with one parent saying it was "such a magical get together" and another saying "that was so great, the best Friday afternoon we've had in I don’t even know how long".
