On 30th June 11 students visited the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Strolling around the park students were amazed by the lions and tigers (even though they were all sleeping).

Whether it was the wallabies holding their babies or the monkeys protecting theirs, students were treated to some great Wildlife moments, including getting up close with a giant polar bear.

The trip was a prize, won by the students, as part of a competition linked to the new social media account celebrating achievements of Year 9 students. All they had to do was get their family members to follow the school social media accounts or follow the accounts themselves to be entered into the draw.

If students didn’t have a social media account then they simply could create propaganda to advertise and promote the account to all the students in the Mount St Mary’s community. and they were also entered into the draw.

The students were chosen at random and could then select a friend to join them on the trip. Their behaviour was incredible and it was a thoroughly enjoyable day for all.
