Excursions and Incursions
Our free incursions and excursions provide hands-on learning experiences for primary and secondary school students in New South Wales. Led by registered teachers and expert scientists, these programs are designed to align with the science, geography, and agriculture curriculum.
These programs explore the role of biodiversity in our local landscapes. Students will learn about the function of biodiversity in native environments as well as its significance in agricultural enterprises. By participating in these activities, students gain a deeper understanding of the importance of biodiversity from First Nations Australians, farmers, land managers, community groups and ecologists.
Our staff have their Working with Children Checks, which will be provided. By booking an information session, you can secure your spot and learn more about the specific activities and topics covered in the program. Our dedicated team is committed to making your participation as smooth and stress-free as possible, ensuring a rewarding and enriching educational experience for your students.
Don’t miss out on this valuable opportunity to engage your students in hands-on learning experiences. Book a free information session now to get started.
What this would look like
An initial meeting (online or via phone) to discuss your priorities and goals for the term.
Petaurus works with you (via email or meetings) to organise the event to suit school needs. We will develop all risk assessments, permission slips, equipment, bussing, presenters, timetables and more. School staff are responsible for the supervision, first aid and behaviour of students. On the day we can cater for up to 50 students and we will require a minimum of two teachers and SLSOs. Petaurus asks that students and staff bring their own food, water, hats, sunscreen, drink bottles and wear appropriate clothing and footwear. On the day students will be split into groups and rotate through a number of rotations (approx. 45 mins each).
