What a wonderful trip for our Geelong Ambassadors. We started with a drift snorkel around the Marine National Park area of Popes Eye, where they are so many different fish species hiding out among the kelp. Then it was off to Portsea for a relaxed snorkel with weedy seadragons!
As always though, the Australian fur seals out at Chinamans Hat were a favourite with the Ambassadors; the seals are so playful and fun to be in the water with. This year there are more seals than ever as there are fewer hangouts for them to rest. They are all males and they spend a lot of time sunbathing and arguing for the best spot!
DID YOU KNOW? The fur seals originally came from the Cape in South Africa about 12,000 years ago when the sea levels were much lower at the end of the ice age. They can definitely call Australia home now.
Thank you to Torie and Troy, and all the fab crew at Moonraker. You do an amazing job every time.
Don’t Forget: Workshops next term at Our Lady Star of the Sea and Holy Spirit for peer teaching.
P.S. A very warm welcome to our new school, St Mary’s in Geelong.
