African Dance Classes - Archery Excursion

Warburton Primary School kids definitely don't just sit in the class. BORING! They get out and about, they move as they learn about new cultures - and they move and learn outside at the recent Archery excusions x 4 weeks at launching place. Team work, supporting each other, working together wins the day.

Over many years, groundwater emerging below the Horners Road embankment has made this area unusable (and ‘out-of-bounds’) most of the time, particularly following higher than average rainfall over preceding months.
