On the 12th of September, we went to Fern Tree for a short bushwalk to Silver Falls with an English class from Tas Tafe. It was a truly glorious spring day, with the sun out and warm air, and although the winds were strong everyone felt comfortable and relaxed. We introduced ourselves, talked about our favourite things, shared stories about our families and took photos at the waterfall. One fun fact we learned about Fern Trees is that they grow only 3-5 cm per year! So the big Fern Trees all around us during the walk must have been very old!

Silver Falls is a small waterfall but is very beautiful and worth the walk.

After our walk, we settled down to have lunch at the barbeque area. We ate foods from many different countries and laughed as we shared stories and learned about everyone countries . It was a wholesome and energizing day and everyone left with lungs full of fresh air.

I am very happy because I loved to see the
tree ferns. I felt very good. The trees are the
same in my country. You asked my class one
by one. “What are your feeling’, ‘What your
thinking’, thank you. – Lay Paw
