Bright Eyes visits Ushaka Marine World

This was a most wonderful day for our little ones!
Following our Sea world classroom theme, we made our annual Bright Eyes visit to Ushaka marine world on Friday 14th November and were so happy to be apart of this magical experience for our little kids.Upon arrival we were treated by some unusual creatures- a fat slimy frog, a big lazy lizard and 2 large snakes. The children touched them all! To our utter amazement- they were most excited and comfortable with the slithering snake on their laps!We were walked through the aquarium, gazing at the colourfully -lit fish tanks and allowed to touch and explore a giant turtle shell, the sharp teeth of a shark's jaw and "all hands into" a tank of sucking prawns- which sparked much giggling.A real high point was getting to meet and touch Mr Seal, who gave little Thobe a big wet fishy kiss!Afterwards, we were treated by KZN Society of the Blind, Bauman House, to a wonderful lunch, followed by a walk on the beach and quick play in the waves
The day couldn't have gone better!
We would like to send a huge thank you to Ann Kunz and her staff from Ushaka for the wonderful experience and the patient manner with which they reached out to all our children. The holistic experience the children were able to benefit from was excellent. thank you.

As always
waiting for our doorbell to ring and new joys to come in

Cally, Carron and Corne
