We are excited to welcome school groups into our beautiful gardens!
Our experienced, qualified educator develops and delivers a variety of inquiry-based learning education programs for preschool to senior secondary students.
The programs are aligned to the Australian Curriculum, employ TfEL pedagogies and, where possible, have been constructed with students.
Please contact DEWBGSchools@sa.gov.au or call 8222 9343 if you would like to discuss a future booking, or if you would like any assistance in planning a future visit.
