Cross-country thrills at ARMSTRONG's Bunjil's Nest
Tearing about Armstrong and Bunjil’s Nest adventure park had kids from Torquay’s Lisieux Primary School squealing with delight recently.
The school staged its first cross-country carnival at Armstrong with
kids from prep to Year 6 taking part in 14 races ranging in distance from 500m to 3km.
By midday, they were cooling their heels, hitting the lunchboxes and barbecue and throwing themselves into the adventure park – climbing, swinging, flying, tunnelling and generally whipping up a cacophony of happy little-people noises.
“This is the best park ever!” one youngster yelped as he raced toward the flying fox.
Principal Susan Ryan agreed. So, too, did PE teacher Matt Curry, overseeing the energetic tackers.
And judging by the smiles on the faces of some 50 parents on board for the day’s races and sausage sizzle, they thought so too.
