08 May Year 11 Art Trip to Auckland Zoo
The Year 11 Art students went on a day trip to the Auckland Zoo. The aim of the trip was to collect animal photographs and design ideas to form a basis for their drawing, painting and art folios.
The education staff presented an interactive talk on ‘the role of the modern zoo’. They helped students understand aspects of animal behavior and even why it was a good thing that the big animals were asleep in the afternoon. Our students demonstrated the learning habits of caring for and respecting the environment, themselves and others. Given the recent unpredictable weather, we were all grateful for a very pleasant day learning outside the classroom.
