It was an eagerly anticipated event for the Eden students. They could not wait to get on the bus and were very well-behaved throughout the bus journey. Parents and caregivers were invited for the outing too. At the zoo, the students had furry 'encounters' with a ferret, a bunny, a chinchilla and a terrapin at the 'My Precious Paw' programme. This was followed by snack time and a ride round the zoo on the tram. The contented looks on the children’s faces at the end of the trip said it all.
