CURRUMBIN Sanctuary's wildlife came face to face with Centaur primary's kindergarten creatures last Thursday.

The mob of youngsters ventured into the Gold Coast's 27 hectares of native bushland to see the amazing Australian animals which they had been learning about throughout the term.

Teacher Kay Wilson said, "Currumbin Sanctuary is a brilliant place where the students can enjoy interactive displays and be educated on Australian wildlife."

Coming face to face with pelicans, koalas, possums, a python, crocodiles and kangaroos was an exciting adventure that ensured the students visually completed their HSIE learning.

Highlighting the day was a Train Driver Dan who transported the children (and the teacher's tired feet) across the terrain to escape into the park's Wild Island adventure play area.
