Sonshine Ranch Trip

On Friday the 23rd of November we went on an amazing trip to Sonshine Ranch. We did four activities and they were water confidence course which D4 did first when the water was freezing cold however we still had fun. The next activity we moved to was the flying fox and rope swing which was a little nerve racking at first but then felt cool. After the flying fox we moved to the last activity which was horse back riding there were three stations. One of the stations was practising some important tips on a a wooden horse before we went on a real horse. The next station was riding a horse around the track. The last station was patting the farm animals. There were bunnies, goats, guinea pigs, and an enourmous pig with her two little piglets. But before we left Sonshine Ranch we went on the playground where there was a huge, long, green slide on a hill. On our way back everyone looked and felt exhausted including the teachers and parent helpers. We would also like to say a big thank you to all the parent helpers for their assistance on the day. Here is a video of the amazing day.
