A Zooper Day Out!

Despite the poor weather at the begining of the month, more than 260 Shane English School students in the Chiba district awoke to a bright, sunny and hot day for their much anticipated zoo event on Sunday June 12th. The students, aged from 5-14, attended together with their parents, and with a significant number of teachers, Japanese staff and managerial staff also on hand, the total number of SES people involved was well over 500!

Students and staff were divided into 15 teams, each required to visit 7 'zones' around the zoo to answer questions on the animals in that zone and perform an animal action and sound. Stickers were awarded to each student after completing a zone's tasks and these were added to the zoo map booklet. After a "lion-sized" lunch, each team was then asked to perform a series of different animal actions and sounds, and prizes were awarded, based largely on artistic interpretation (and volume). The many other visitors to the zoo were treated to 500 people acting and sounding like an elephant - in chorus!
