Merri Creek Excursion
Category : Grade 1 & 2's
On Monday, 23rd April the 1/2 Learning Area set off for the long walk to Merri Creek. We were met by Angela from the organisation, “The Friends of Merri Creek”. She ran some sessions with the students and talked about the bird and animal life at the creek. We also learned that the Merri Creek is over 75 kilometres long. She showed us a map that showed other creeks that run into Merri Creek and how Merri Creek then flows into the Yarra River, which then flows into the sea. We also did some very detailed drawings of the plants in the area. It was a great day and the students coped with the walk in fine spirits. Below are some photos of our walk and some thank you letters written by the students to Angela.
