Year 1: CERES Science excursion

Year 1: CERES Science excursion


Students will be going on an excursion to Ceres which will help the students understand more about our inquiry unit and allow them to explore living things and how they grow, survive and change.  CERES is a place where people come together to share ideas about living well together and directly participate in meeting their social and material needs in a sustainable way.


When: Thursday 29th August
Where:: CERES Community Environment Park

Brunswick East

Mode of Transport: Bus
Cost: Nil (on this occasion the cost is covered by the School Excursion Levy)
Uniform: Sports Uniform and Hat

Due to the unpredictability of Melbourne’s Weather, it is recommended your child brings a raincoat or rain poncho.

Lunch:  Students are required to bring a packed lunch, water bottle and healthy snack in a recyclable bag clearly labelled with their name.

Excess rubbish will not be accepted and will be taken home by each student.


We would very much appreciate the assistance of some parents on the day so that we can keep our groups to a workable size. If you would like to help and have a valid “Working with Children Check” certification, which has been registered in CareMonkey, and have been through the St Peter’s Volunteer Interview processplease indicate accordingly below and your child’s teacher will contact you.  Due to the responsibility involved in supervising a group of children, you will not be able to bring along pre-schoolers.

Also note that all parents assisting with this excursion will be required to attend a compulsory briefing session on Monday 26th August at 3.15pm in the 1A classroom.
