South West Primary’s sustainability excursion

Colac South West Primary School took the classroom outdoors to educate students about environmental sustainability.

More than 100 students from South West Primary School visited the Great Otway National Park with teacher Geoff Currington and Colac Otway Shire Council’s Environment Projects Officer Andrew Barber on Tuesday last week.

The grade three and four children hiked trails, explored the surrounding bushland, and studied landscape and the habitats of creatures living there.

Students examined erosion, climatic conditions, living and non-living things, flora and fauna, recording their experiences and illustrating the things they saw.

Their adventure finished at Birregurra, where students looked out across the flood plain to gain an understanding of the topography of the area.

Mr Barber lead the group, and said students enjoyed the hands-on approach to learning about the environment.

“It was impressive to see how diligently the students were approaching their studies,” he said.
