"The students were provided with hands on activities which were pitched perfectly at their age and stage. Excellent resources such as microscopes, iPads, binoculars and ochre paints enriched the student understanding."
"Fostered curiosity, reinforced environmental awareness, excellent detailed discussions on insects in the environment."
"It gave an Aboriginal perspective that was authentic. It made links with what was learned in class about reading maps and gave an Australian perspective."

Just wanted to say thank you so much for having us at your AMAZING school!
You really have something special there mate and you and your team are perfect for it!
You guys are so easy going, caring and understanding and made us feel so comfortable and welcome!
Your outdoor classrooms are fantastic, and the way you have linked all your Enviro areas together is truely inspirational Steve! The tawny lesson the kids did today was BRILLIANT in linking everything!! Genius!!
Honestly mate, I’m still buzzing from the camp and can’t thank you and your amazing team enough!
Our kids have been dealt a pretty rough hand in life and the way you and your staff were with them was amazing! So patient and understanding and very encouraging which these kids respond so well to! So thank you all for making some unforgettable memories for our kids too. They were all beaming when their parents/careers came to pick them up this arvo. The cool and funny stories were being swapped around from child to parent/career and they were all laughing and excited!
The excited smiles on the kids faces combined with the proud smile on their parents were absolutely heart warming to see… and that’s all thanks to you amazing people!
Can’t wait to be their again with another bunch of great kids for you all to inspire!
Thank you so much for everything!!

Stage 3 camp
Thank you so much for having us over the last 2 days. The students had an absolute ball and loved spending time at Brewongle. We have also received very positive feedback from parents this morning. Staff also had a great time and enjoyed the 2 day experience that the students had.
Thank you again!
Kind Regards, Kristen Maginnis

Primary geography teacher professional learning
Extremely well organised day. 1st session was very helpful as it explained the components of the syllabus and the acquiring, processing & communicating parts in a way that could be understood by non-geography-trained novices. The Stage 3 fieldwork session was highly relevant to the unit we will be implementing this term and provided practical examples of how to introduce and carry out fieldwork with our classes. The afternoon session provided us with even more ideas for engaging our students in geographical inquiry by encouraging the 'big students' to use some geographical tools. Not only was the day highly informative, well run, creative and engaging but it was FUN! A beautiful setting in a magnificent part of the world. The food provided is exceptional - I have not experienced better at a professional learning day. Overall, a very worthwhile experience! Congratulations and thanks Brewongle EEC.
