School Tour to Loughwell Farm Park on Monday, 20th June

We had an AMAZING time on our school tour yesterday. We went to Loughwell Farm Park in Moycullen. We went with all our friends in Miss Tierney's class and Mrs Flannery's class. We travelled to the farm in a double decker bus. Some of us had never been on a double decker bus before so there was great excitement from the very beginning!! When we arrived on the farm we had a tour around and we got to see all the animals. We saw Patsy and Petsy - the adorable pot bellied pigs. We met Piny Stripe (the tiniest pony we have ever seen!!!). We just adored the alpacas called Albert, Alfred and Alex. We also met Snowy the rabbit and got to pet her. We went to the duck pond and got to feed the ducks. We had lunch inside and had lots of treats with us.
Next it was time to play!!! We all got a chance to go on the Zip wire. Even teacher and Mrs Minahan had a turn!!! We had an obstacle race outside which was fantastic fun and we played in the timber play villages. We also played in the sand dunes with play diggers. We also had great fun on the pedal go karts. In the playbarn we went on the bouncy castle and the huge bouncy slide (again the teachers were also eager to have a turn or two!!!). The highlight for many of us was when the farmer gave us all a spin on little carts that were attached on to his tractor and gave us a spin around the farm. He could take 8 people at a time. When we got in our cart we had to put our seat belt on to be safe and off we went!!! We really had a wonderful day. Some people even fell asleep on the bus on the way home!!
