Room 24 Zoo

Ahoi there mateys
You may have heard the news that Room 24 has new members! A rainbow lorikeet and many monarch caterpillars and chrysalises. We are looking after them while Mrs Reid is helping out at senior camp. The class have been very inquisitive, caring and respectful of the animals.
