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.
