Primary class outing to Olympic Park
Primary school students can be taught the concept of environment through “Our Place”, a field trip through Bicentennial Park at Sydney Olympic Park. The excursion gives firsthand insight into the animals and plants that inhabit the wetlands, how to care for them, compare natural and built environments, and how the park recycles its rubbish and water. The excursion goes for two hours, twice a day, costs $11.90 per student and can be booked by calling (02) 9714 7888. Key learning outcomes can be downloaded from the Sydney Olympic Park website.
