On Bendigo Cup Eve the Preparatory students enjoyed their “Extended Stay” at school. We started the adventure at the White Hills Botanical Gardens where we explored the park and visited the bird aviary. We then visited the Bendigo Pottery and created some wonderful pieces of art work with clay. Back at school we enjoyed garlic bread and pizza for dinner. We followed this with a play outside and a short movie. The eager parents collected the children at 7pm and we all enjoyed the day.
