125,000 sheep on an­cient ship

Mun­dub­bera State School P-10 get a look how one of the most fa­mous ships in his­tory was built.

NOAH’S Ark had a ca­pac­ity to hold up to 125,000 sheep ac­cord­ing to Rod Walsh who brought his replica ark to Mun­dub­bera State School P-10 last week.

“Noah’s Ark was ex­tremely sta­ble, more sta­ble in fact than mod­ern ships,” Mr Walsh said.

“It was de­signed by God for ca­pac­ity and its abil­ity to float. “I have trav­elled the world with my mod­els of Noah’s Ark and I have now built seven of them.”

They are on dis­play in New Zealand and Eng­land, demon­strat­ing the ca­pac­ity and how the an­i­mals were housed in orig­i­nal Noah’s Ark.

MrWalsh and his dis­plays are part of Cre­ation Min­istries In­ter­na­tional. Sue Leder­hose and the Mun­dub­bera Bap­tist Church in­vited MrWalsh to Mun­dub­bera by Mrs Sue Leder­hose and the Bap­tist Church of Mun­dub­bera.

“I con­sulted with the other Churches and de­nom­i­na­tions in Mun­dub­bera so that we could get Noah’s Ark into the state school in the re­li­gious ed­u­ca­tion time.” Mrs Leder­hose said.

The chil­dren were in­vited to in­spect the way all the pens may have been ar­ranged.

NOAH'S ARK: The ark came alive for the stu­dents of Mun­dub­bera School as they moved past. Imag­i­na­tions went to a place far away, as they pon­dered the wild an­i­mals shel­ter­ing from the flood.
