KPMG Trip

On the 27 of July a group of kids (31) were invited to a place called KPMG. KPMG is a financial company who help other companies. We took a 30 minute drive from Pt England School to KPMG. We were then greeted to some of the staff and then we had a quality tour around the office. After the tour we had Morning tea which they prepared for us. It was Scones with jam and cream and sausage rolls with Orange juice & Water. After that they taught us the art of photo-shop so they took pictures of us in front of a green screen and we were wearing all types of props. We then were Photoshoped into backgrounds of our choosing.  After or before taking our photo we could photo shop stuff from Dinosaurs to Astronauts in to back rounds. Then for lunch we had mini burgers, deep fried mash potatoes, salad, fried chicken. AFter we had lunch we played with playdoh and made all kinds of creations.
