World Turtle Day

23 May, 2023

World Turtle Day is an annual observance aimed at raising awareness and promoting the protection of turtles and tortoises, as well as their habitats worldwide

Our kindergarten services have been 'shellebrating' with some turtle art and craft and enjoyed a visit by Sharleen Sharp from Turtles Albury Wodonga.

Children at Stanley Street Kindergarten made a new friend as they got up close and personal with a turtle.

Sharleen told the children a little about the three types of turtles found along the Murray - the Murray River short neck, the common long neck and the broad-shelled turtle.

Check out some of the cute photos we snapped.
