Year 2: Eureka Tower & Botanic Gardens excursion

Year 2: Eureka Tower & Botanic Gardens excursion


This term, students are learning how our land connects us as a community. To develop their understanding of where we live we would like to take the students to Eureka Tower to help them identify the landmarks of Melbourne. We will be looking at Melbourne from a birds eye view and connecting this to our mapping knowledge.

We will also be going to the Royal Botanical Gardens to look at native Australian plants and why these plants grow well in Australia. During the excursion, students will be visiting a nearby McDonalds where they will have a chance to get a McDonalds soft serve cone (this will be supplied).

When: Tuesday 29th October
Where: Eureka Tower

Riverside Quay, Southbank

Royal Botanical Gardens

Birdwood Avenue


Mode of Transport: Bus
Cost: $5.00 (The remaining cost of this excursion will be covered by the excursion)
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 plastic bag.

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 you have been through the St Peter’s Volunteer Interview process, please 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 Friday 25th October at 8.30am in the 2C Classroom.
