Program feedback

"This excursion gave students a deeper understanding of geographical inquiry and invaluable opportunities to explore biodiversity and the interconnectedness of things in the environment. Students were provided with learning experiences that were related to the real world. We used this excursion to kick start our Geography, Science and History integrated units."
