Cottage by the Sea Excursion

On Thursday 3rd December, the Year 2 students made the journey to Queenscliff to visit Cottage by the Sea and the Marine Discovery Centre. It turned out to be a magnificent sunny day. All of the students, teachers and parents enjoyed their time at Cottage by the Sea where the students were able to participate in the outdoor activities such as basketball, tennis, the playground and exploring the games in the activity hut. The students were able to see the indoor facilities and learnt about the children who were chosen to spend time at this wonderful camp. Everyone enjoyed their time at the beach.

At the Marine Discovery Centre, the students were able to explore the rock pool and handle many of the marine animals kept in the tank. They enjoyed exploring the different fresh and sea water animals in the aquarium.

It was a wonderful day had by all!
