Philip Island Oct 2018

Off to Philip Island to visit with lots of wildlife, and to experience how a small regional area makes the most of it’s tourism potential !! A wonderful 2 days was had as students got to experience so much of what Philip island has to offer. The weather was perfect , not too hot or cold, and the animals really came out to play for us this trip. Unfortunately on day two the bus broke down ( again!!! the second time for these students!!) But after a quick interlude on the swings in the park , Bunyip had a replacement bus organised for us… YAY . So a quick change over at the Australian botanical gardens in Cranbourne and we were off home.

Around the bay Aug 2018

Into the BRIG !!

Around the Bay again and what a wonderful trip we had until the huge learning curve of a coach break down. Stranded amongst the redolent , freshly fertilised fields of the Mornington Peninsular, the SOS went out until a kindly , local, school bus driver picked us up and got us to the Arthurs Seat Eagle. We managed to all get our ride with the magnificent views before the thunder storm arrived, and luckily our bus company had found a replacement coach to take us home. PHEW!
