This program is a fantastic immersion into the Indigenous perspective into our natural environment with an exploration through the elements of land, sky, water and fire.
The children will discover how first nations people showed respect to the abundant and sacred life force that is integrated upon the Earth.
Using storytelling, art, native foods and guidance from our experienced educators, we will uncover the tangible actions that we can do to protect this land on which we all live together.
The program is aimed at children 7-12 years of age and is held in Currumbin.
Children are asked to wear a hat, sturdy shoes and sunscreen. For programs that finish by noon, children need to bring morning tea with them, and for programs that run longer than that, a lunch and perhaps a light afternoon snack too. (All food needs to be nut-free.) And don’t forget a water bottle!
We have wet weather plans in place so a bit of rain won’t stop us.
You will get an email a day before the program including details and contact names for the day. If you wish to get in touch with us before that, please email ecodiscoverers [at] gecko.org.au.
All our programs are run by experienced and qualified educators who look after your child during the program. The parents need to drop the children off approximately 10 minutes before the program starts and are asked to collect their child no later than 10 minutes after the program has finished. It is important that each attending child has been signed in and out by the parent or guardian.
All children attending need to be booked through our website. To ensure your child’s safety and a quality experience with us, we require to know numbers and details of children attending prior to the program.
