On the 23rd and 24th March 2016, our Junior Primary class travelled to the Monarto Zoo to be part of the filming of a television show for a children’s TV production company ‘Beach House’. The company is based in Singapore and has a co-production being established with the Nine Network. Filming was conducted in and around the zoo, with the help of Ellard, a large puppet who has adventures and interacts with young people.
We were originally approached by Wally from the Monarto Zoo asking if we would like to be part of the filming material for 4-6 episodes… and we jumped at the chance.
It was also great to visit Lila & Autumn’s mum Michelle, who works at the zoo as a carnivore keeper (pictured).
