A Day at the EKKA

Last Friday, the Year 7s travelled to Brisbane for a day at the Ekka. For many of them this was their first time at the Brisbane Royal Show, and the sights and sounds of the show did not disappoint.

Upon arrival, the students were divided into 4 groups and given a treasure hunt to complete as quickly as possible – having to answer questions about various animals at the Ekka, locate Granite Belt producers in the Woolworths Fresh Food Pavilion, find freebies, watch diving pigs, take group ‘selfies’ in designated locations, and more. A great exercise in both map reading and teamwork!
