Fishing Trip

On Friday our Grade 6’s went to Peterborough to do some fishing.

When we left Friday morning the weather was horrible and unfortunately it stayed that way all day.

We did not catch any fish but the students had a great time trying, we had tangled fishing line from one end of the river to the other.

Congratulatons to Soul for winning himself a new fishing rod and to Zoe, Jai and Max for winning a ticket to the Colac Cinemas.
