On Friday 17 August the entire Senior Intensive English Unit (SIEU) crew left the safety of Darwin High School to embark on a fabulous adventure.
By SIEU teacher Tony Walton
We spent the day at the Territory Wildlife Park and immersed ourselves in the natural flora and fauna of Australia. What an adventure!
We fed and patted wallabies, got up close and personal to echidnas, slinked and slithered with slippery snakes, marvelled at the size of wedge-tailed eagles and cheered when the black breasted buzzard finally cracked the emu egg.
It was a great day out of class, a great way to meet new friends and to enjoy the relaxed company of our teachers. We learnt a lot about the flora and fauna of Australia and learned a whole lot more about our new home.
