Grade 7 visit IMHOFF FARM

Grade 7 visit IMHOFF FARM

The “Tortoise race” was very cute! Senan’s tortoise would not move no matter how loud we all shouted – GO! Tristan just loved the bunny. The Golden Dragon loved Jordan’s hair. We were introduced to so many different animals and the Grade 7’s had a magical day. The best way to unwind after Assessments!
