Excursion to Cleland, Hahndorf and Mt Lofty
On 25th, August 2023, students from study tour group of Bosa International School and Headstart group went on an excursion to Cleland, Hahndorf and Mt Lofty.
It was a beautiful day for an excursion. The weather was palmy, and the sun was shining, the air was filled with the sweet fragrance from the blossoms of peach trees, plum trees, and almond trees. Buses took students first to Cleland Wildlife Park, Students in groups strolled along the pathways feeding kangaroos, padding Koalas, watching Tasmania devils, emus, dingos, and birds. Students stopped at historical town of Hahndorf to have lunch and explored shops filled with beautiful characterises. Students listened to Mr Oakey, our principal, talking about the history of the town and how it was named. Walking from Mt Lofty Summit to Waterfall Gully sounded a little challenging with 3.5 kilometres in length and steep sections on the way, however, students were determined to take the challenge, and everyone enjoyed the journey.

On 25th of August, me, and my school, as well as the Indonesian Bosa studying tour students, went on a trip to so many attractions, such as: Cleland Wildlife Park, Hahndorf, and Lofty Mountain. First, we departed at around 9:30AM and arrived at Cleland at 10 O’clock, we were able to see so many wonderful animals that we haven’t seen before, such as kangaroos, koalas, dingoes, snakes, and many other types of reptiles. We were also allowed to hold and touch the cute koala. We bought food to feed the animals, and I even fed the kangaroo and a strange bird. It was very fun to see and meet many animal friends. After that, we went to Hahndorf and had lunch there, I and my friends, we shared our lunches together, with bananas, snacks, oranges, sandwiches, popcorns, … And then we went jogging along the Hahndorf beautiful street and bought some ice creams, we saw many restaurants, opportunity shops, and parks. I could also know about the origin of the name “Hahndorf”. As far as I was told by the principal on that day, “Hahn” was the name of the person who discovered “Hahndorf”, people often called him “Captain Hahn”. And “dorf” means “town” in Germany, that was how the name “Hahndorf” created. The teachers showed us the statue of captain Hahn too. Then we took the bus again to go to Mt Lofty. It was such a tall and unbelievable mountain; we took a quick rest and took so many beautiful photos together. Finally, we went for a walk that last for about one hour with nearly four kilometres to the waterfall, that was very tired, but we were able to see such beautiful mountain and forest, along with the birds, the trail and many kinds of trees and flowers. After long walking, we arrived at the beautiful waterfall, it was big and impressive. And we also took photos with our home class teacher. And we got on the bus and went back to our school. It was such a remarkable and unforgettable trip, I have learnt so many things through that, I can make new friends, see many lovely things, animals, and natures. I feel very happy and excited for going on that wonderful trip, I want to be able to go on more trip like this.

On August 25, 2023, I was able to participate in the school field trip. Our class (Headstart) and the friends of Bosa International High School have had many interesting experiences together. We were in class at the usual time, but instead of classes, we were able to do outdoor activities. We started walking to the parking lot to move to the first place. We crossed the streets with pleasure, and at the same time the weather was perfect for a walk. The first place we went to was Cleland wildlife park. We went to buy a bag of animal food; I thought it would be an interesting experience for us because we could touch the animals and feed them. We took turns going from the area: kangaroo, koala, emu, wild dog, …, Finishing the trip there, we started moving to the second place for lunch, which is Hahndorf - German village. My group had lunch on the lawn, and we chatted there, it felt chill. After lunch we took pictures with the commemorative statue, and we started walking the third place on the trip, which is from Mount Lofty Summit to Waterfall Gully. It was an enjoyable day trip.
Last Friday we went to the zoo and walked down a mountain. In the Cleland Wildlife Park， we saw koalas, kangaroos, snakes and so on. The koalas are very cute, and they like to sleep, and the kangaroos are very obedient, and they were sunbathing on the grass. The mountain is the highest mountain in Adelaide, and we could see the whole Adelaide from the top. There is also a waterfall at the bottom of the mountain, where it is very cool, and you can see a rainbow if you look at it from a close distance.
