BUT, our prayers were answered and what do you know - we were loaded onto our buses, sent in the direction of Grey Lynn and ZOOFARI we were here...
Out of our class of 24, ten of us had been to the zoo. Sadly 4 who weren't at school on the day we ventured out, meanwhile the the other 10 who hadn't been were enjoying a great day out... As this was funded by Ritches and The Warehouse the experience will be forever in our minds for years to come... We have many photos to accompany this trip, so sit back and have a good look at some of our shots...
