Ariana’s school trip to Esplanade

Last Wednesday was Ariana’s first school daily trip to Esplanade, organized by the school. Since that it was on my offday, I took the chance to join in the trip. There were 3 buses which accomodated the teachers, kids and parents. I did not realize in the release form that parents can also join in the bus trip, so I drove myself. There were also few parents whod rove themselves. It was actually cute to see parents car tailgating the 3 buses. I bet everybody are very anxious and excited on this trip.

I didnt know at first which bus was Ariana on, but the bus that stopped right in front of me at the car park, was the bus that Ariana was on. I immediately saw her super-full-of-excitement face through my windshield.

Lining up as soon as they get their feet of the bus.

Their activity started off with a story telling, a round of walk by the sea side to observe, listen and fell the sea, sand and tiny creatures by the sea side. After that, they stopped for short break and continue on with building sandcastles, the most awaited activity by the kids.

From my personal view, it was a very good activity and great experience gained by the kids. But, it would be better if the local citizen are more aware of keeping our mother nature clean for our younger kids in future. We noticed a lot of litter along the seaside, eventhough the are many rubbish bin provided there.

How hard could it really be to walk to the rubbish bin and throw your rubbish in?

Overall, the kids had fun and enjoyed their day… And I got sunburn :/
