This week we tagged along with Hubby’s school to Movieworld.
No, not to enjoy a day of rides,
but for an ‘educational’ experience.
I know, I raised my eyebrows at it too
(and rightfully so!)
Okay, well there was time allocated for rides
but the dodgems and little cars are as adventurous as my little men like to get.
The highlight of our day was the Stunt Driver show.
I’m very partial to the noise of a purring V8.
The smoke, the noise, the speeds, the atmosphere and thrills
…says the 5ft Christian lady, who only ever wears skirts and has long hair. 🙂
Hey, don’t judge me. 🙂
But to my horror, my hubby was selected from the crowd as part of the show.
Thankfully, he was sitting with his school group, so I could pretend I didn’t know him.
“Why?” you ask.
Does this explain it all?!
After the show, the school group got a personal information session with the stunt car drivers.
This was probably the only interesting part of the school excursion,
but even it didn’t have any content that I would regard as ‘educational’.
Did you know that they rotate the tyres on their stunt cars every day and have to change the tyres completely every three days?
Interesting, yes; educational, dubious.
After the chat, all of the children got to explore the stunt set and look inside the vehicles.
Cool, but still not educational.
So, what did I think of our day on a ‘school’ excursion?
It was a ‘fun’ day out for the school kids
and my boys learned how incredibly inefficient is it to organise 120 school kids and their guardians.
But educational, it was not.
We only went because Hubby needed a lift,
and our passes run out in a couple of weeks.
The plan was to leave at lunch and head to the Deep Oceans exhibit at Sea world,
(for some education, in our woefully noneducational day)
while we waited to pick up Hubby from school,
but the heavens open
and it rained on our plans.
