On Wednesday the 20th of June and Thursday 21st of June, Tarawera Pod(our Junior syndicate) travelled by bus (Parents by school van) to Kelly Tarlton's.On the way, we made a couple of stops and a visit to the Auckland Zoobefore we could go to Kelly Tarlton's at 7pm.
Guess what???*Shortly after arriving at the Auckland Zoo, it began to 'drizzle',then 'rain a little harder' and then 'rained a little harder still'! :)Our Parents tried to finish some of the activities, and some succeededbut many talked about the animals instead and mainly enjoyed the sights!

A huge Thank You to all our Parents that made our trip an awesome experience! :)Big hi-5's to you all and I hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
