P-2 Tower Hill Excursion – Friday 30th October, 2020

Recently, our Prep to Two students went on an adventure to Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve. Their excursion began with a steep walk up to a lookout with spectacular views of the dormant volcano. Next, they set off on an exciting walk led by knowledgeable guides who made regular stops to share information and bush tucker. The children tried a wide variety of bush tucker, learnt about hunting and gathering and came across lots of wildlife, including, snakes, emus, kangaroos, wallabies, swans, reptiles and far too many mosquitos. After that, they got to learn about indigenous languages, songs, instruments, tools, weapons, clothing and culture. They were extremely lucky to have the chance to hear Paul play the didgeridoo. Lastly, they learnt to throw boomerangs. They had a brilliant day of learning and are continuing to build on this through their inquiry lessons.
