Education

 

Our schools and ELC programs allow students to connect to their local environment, especially Port Phillip Bay, St Kilda Botanical Gardens and Aboriginal Cultures and history. Students will be empowered to take sustainability action within their school, community and at home.

Our programs and excursions are linked to outcomes from VEYLDF, Victorian Curriculum and ResourceSmart Schools.

It was perfectly pitched for the kids' age and ability and they've absolutely loved it.

What you have done (and are continuing to do) at the Centre is impressive and it was brilliant for the girls to see ideas in action in their local community.
