On a wonderful morning the whole school went on a wonderful trip to Kelly Tarltons. We were so lucky to go on this experience because we got a chance to see different kind of species underwater.
I was really excited to go on this trip because this was my first time seeing sharks, penguins and etc.
When I got to school the whole school were in the hall and practising songs for the mass of our Feast Day. Later on some students went down to the streets to see if our buses had arrived so we could leave for Kelly Tarltons. After that we all had to hop in the bus and at the same time we were excited. It took us 10 minutes to get there, maybe a bit more because the bus driver went through shortcuts and it was so long.
Later on we got to the Aquarium Kelly Tarltons, when we got there I just saw this little house, so then I asked Catherine “ Catherine, have you been here “ she replied “ Yes, I have, what you see is a little house, but when you go inside you have to go way down to see the species” I replied “ Okay, this is going to be fun “.
After that Mrs Tui all told us to go through this little house and go down, when she told us that I was so excited. Later on when we were still walking, this host who was taking us down she said that we are going to through “SCOTT'S HUT “, Scott's Hut is a copy of his hut in Antarctica, this hut is still there in Antarctica. What I saw was food, warm clothing and many things to wear in the winter. The reason Scott had to wear these warm things because it is cold in Antarctica and also the temperature in Antarctica is 100% cold.
Finally we got a chance to see real penguins instead of looking at penguins online. The penguins were so cute, there were other penguins that were separated from the others because they are not supposed to be together with them before they attack each other.
After that we went through this spinning tunnel, when you see it the outside is only spinning but when there is a pathway it doesn’t spin, so we walked through it, we had to try and stop us from spinning around.
After that very tiring experience we now went to see the other species of fish and also the sting rays. There was this woman who went into the stingray pool and these other cool fishes were swimming in it. She told us that she is going to feed the stingrays, but the stingrays weren’t hungry because maybe they fed them before she came in.
Later on we had to go through this tunnel and on top of us were fish and also on the left and right side there were fish as well. There were stingrays, different kind of fish, different types of sharks and also there was this creature that stays real still. never moves, but they can only suck their food up.
Later on we went to see the seahorses, the seahorses were so cute and so small, they were smaller than my hand. After that we went to this classroom that someone comes in and tells us everything that happens to the sea creatures if they are going to die, then they will give us a dried Sea Horse, a Sharks teeth and also a sharks egg.
Later on when class was finished we had to walk back outside and go back to school
( BORING ). By the way Kelly Tarltons was a great experience.
