During Term 3, a group of Year 1 and Year 2 students were invited to participate in an excursion at Living Legends in Woodlands Park, Greenvale. Our students were selected to be part of the ‘Horses Birthday’ Celebrations where they explored information about the Melbourne Cup, visiting the stables and meeting past winners of the famous race! The students participated in arts and crafts throughout the day, which included; decorating horse shoes, colouring in and face painting. In the afternoon the students saw how the horses where weighed, they then went onto the scales to see how many students they had to put together to make them weigh the same as a horse. They also got to feed the horses some carrots and gave them a friendly pat. We all had a very exciting and educational day!
