The students will engage in small group activities which are not only fun and educational but will also provide support and reinforcement for your classroom teaching. Most activities relate to the Australian National Curriculum, but others provide extension at a primary student level.
Each activity takes 30 minutes, 25 minutes for the activity and a five-minute changeover time. Please refer to the day tour activity sheets which you can download below and include your choice of activities on the booking sheet.
Our fees are based on the number of activities:
4 Activities – $11 per student
5 Activities – $13 per student
6 Activities – $15 per student
Vacation Day Tours – $12 per student (4 Activities)
If you require more than six activities please contact us.
Please Note: The group must consist of ten students or more except in special circumstances approved by the School Day Tours Committee. The maximum number of children per tour is 60.
If you have a larger group that you would like to attend and are able to split the attendees into two groups, we are happy to do two tours in one day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, or tours on two consecutive days
