Year Prep: Werribee Open Range Zoo excursion

Year Prep: Werribee Open Range Zoo excursion


As part of our Inquiry unit on living things and their environment, the children in Prep will be attending an excursion to Werribee Open Range Zoo. The children will participate in the Habitat Heroes education program and explore the Zoo on an African Safari bus ride. The aim of  this excursion is to broaden students’ understanding of the habitats of various living things and examine what is needed for their survival.

When: Monday 26th August
Where:: Werribee Open Range Zoo
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 their lunch in a plastic bag clearly labelled with their name.

Lunchboxes will not be required on this day.

Food should be wrapped in disposable wrappings.

Drink bottles are required. No glass bottles are allowed.

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 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 Thursday 22nd August in Prep B classroom at 3.15pm.
