3rd Class Trip to Fota

Fota Wildlife Park.

On November 23rd  Third Class  went on a trip to Fota Wildlife Park. This was not our school tour, but it was an extra tour for us, in November, to learn about how they re-use and recycle, in Fota. We attended a workshop called “Going Green, Staying Green”.  We travelled there by bus.

We went behind the scenes to the kitchen and we learned how they made the food for the animals. They told us why they feed them more vegetables than fruit. The reason is that vegetables are much healthier for them than fruit. Fruit has a lot of sugar in it. We saw animals like cheetahs, giraffes, ostriches and much more. We visited the giraffes in their houses.

When we got on the bus to go back to school Miss Tuohy showed us a little gift that Mr Nolan bought for us. He got pencils and notebooks for everybody, the gift shop at Fota.

When we got back to class we made cards to thank Fota for the wonderful day we had. We got no homework and we all had a great day.
