No school today
Every term the School has what is called a pupil free day, where the teachers get a day of inservice training. This does not affect the Kindy kids so earlier this week I had the older two kids at home for the day. We decided to go to the Botanical gardens, which are only 10 minutes from our home. They have such an amazing and diverse bunch of plants from all over the subtropical world. There is also a lovely Japanese garden complete with amazing bonsai trees, some being nearly 50 years old! Our highlight is the sculpture trail which the kids meander through the gardens looking for each sculpture. So on our pupil free day the two older kids ran through the gardens experiencing the delights of both the natural and artistic worlds.
