Connect to Country (Early Stage 1)

Our Connect to Country program focuses on integrating Aboriginal culture and values within the 5 key outcomes of the early years learning framework (below). Children will connect with local country of Centennial Park and Burra (eel) spotting, get creative with sand art and play a range of Traditional Indigenous games.  

Activities:
  • Cultural Heritage Walk around the wetlands of Centennial Park
  • Sand Art
  • Traditional Indigenous Games
This program is run by our service provider Deadly Ed and can be booked for every Thursday during term.
