When I was planning this trip, people advised me this was an ill-fated year group, who often received a drenching on their outings.
NOT ANY MORE!
How lucky were we: every time it rained we were under cover. The weather didn’t limit our visit to Marwell Zoo at all.
Even better, many animals (especially the big cats) were active and in close view. The giraffes were positively skittish, cantering around and meeting up in circles like players before a match.
A big thank you to the children for their exemplary behaviour and a warm thank you to the adult volunteers without whom we wouldn’t have been able to take the children out of school.
We look forward to the next adventure!
