Summary for the day

Another fantastic day!

A really long day had by all the pupils, with so many things done and places visited.

We started the day off at the local deli, the pupils enjoyed lots of healthy food and got lots of good vitamins in! (Ed. without photos, can not confirm or deny this!)

Central Park Zoo

From there we went to Central Park Zoo, a great experience for all and some amazing animals were seen including a sea lion display and penguins sunning themselves!

Madison Square Garden


We then had a lovely lunch, followed by an afternoon at Madison Square Garden, where the pupils had a brilliant tour of the garden, finding out all about its history.
