Bush School for 5-12

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 centered 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 and science syllabus.
