Bush School for 5-12 Term 3 (12 Jul - 13 Sep)

A weekly NSW curriculum-based nature education program covering literacy, numeracy, geography, arts and science for children of school age that may not be attending regular school or who are home schooled.

Taught by our experienced educators in our bush classroom and surrounding Centennial Parklands, Bush School integrates Nature Play and the school curriculum. With engaging activities centred around a weekly theme, kids will develop an awareness of nature and its systems and gain cultural understanding with fun play and learning outcomes for the geography, science and English syllabus.
