A Parakeet flies into the Preps PE lesson
Last week while the Preps were enjoying their PE lesson with Mr Wood-Johnson a tame parakeet bird decided to land on one
of the student’s heads. Mrs Burrell carefully handled the bird and took it to the Prep B classroom but not before “Pecky”, as he was affectionately named, made friends with Mr Wood-Johnson and the Preps. “Pecky” is still looking for his rightful home but is in safe hands.
