Curriculum Focus:

Our inquiry topic this semester is Australian History with a specific focus this term on Indigenous Australia. On this excursion students will take part in a program called ‘A Shared Journey’ where they will discover the importance of the environment to the Koolin people and how plants were used for food, fibre, medicine and tools. Experiences include a discovery walk, examining artefacts, ochre art and plant food tasting.

Cranbourne Royal Botanic Gardens education experiences are led by qualified teachers. They provide face-to-face engagement through stories and hands-on experience, and reveal the rich sensory environment of the gardens.

This is part of the school curriculum and it is expected that your child will participate.
