Stable Visit

Near our school we have a stable, housed in some of Fremantle's historic buildings. Our school also has a horse crazy bunch of girls: Jitana, Melody, Angel and Tybion. As part of our values project, exploring our neighbourhood, Julia took the girls to visit the stables.

Melody took video footage of the trip, then Melody and Angel edited the clips and produced a movie called The Wild West. If you would like to see the movie please email us. Thanks to Julia for organising the trip and to Ray for answering all the girls' questions.

 

As an added bonus, the girls got to eat mulberries. Tybion looks like she enjoyed a few!
