On October 20th, all sixth-grade students got on buses early in the morning – but they weren’t going to school! Their destination was the Bronx Zoo, in New York City, where they would stay until 3.00 in the afternoon.

This annual field trip first occurred many years ago, but it has changed a lot since then. For one thing, when it first began, the three teams went separately, on different days, while today, they go on the same day.

The sixth-graders were divided into groups of 4 or 5 during the FLEX period on the previous Friday. These groups spent approximately twenty minutes working with a map of the Bronx Zoo to plan out their route.

At 9.00 in the morning on Thursday, sixth-grade students, teachers, and parent chaperones alike all climbed into 8 Coach buses. On seeing the interior of the buses, Ulysses, a sixth-grade student, said, “It’s perfect!¨ 

The visitors had a fantastic day, seeing baboons and tigers and reptiles. One student commented, “This is so much fun!” The groups even got to go to the 4D theater and the Congo Gorilla Forest!

Everyone’s  praise was very convincing. One 6 Green student even said, “This is the best field trip ever!”

The kids returned to the school at 4.30, very excited. The sight that greeted them was amazing. It was a sea of cars, numbering at least 150.

In the end, it was a great trip, and all the students involved agreed that it was worth the six-grade wait.
