New adventures for SLA in 2013
While you’re preparing for the new school year, don’t forget about the popular educational tours on offer in The Rocks through Sydney Learning Adventures (SLA).
SLA has streamlined its range of educational activities for 2013, and now offers a stronger focus on Aboriginal and archaeology programs.
As our programs take place in Cadigal country, the home of the first inhabitants of the Sydney area, Sydney Learning Adventures’ programs acknowledge the intrinsic and ancient connection between the land and the harbour in the stories and traditions of the Cadigal people.
This is reflected in our Aboriginal programs which include a walking tour of The Rocks and a harbour cruise aboard the Mari Nawi with the Tribal Warrior Association.
Sydney Learning Adventures also continues to offer five unique archaeology programs at The Big Dig Archaeology Education Centre in The Rocks.
We recommend combining a program with a free visit to The Rocks Discovery Museum, which provides online teacher resources.
For more information, or to book a program, call us on (02) 9240 8552 or email email@example.com.
We would be delighted to help you find a program to suit your needs.
Drawing on her experience as a secondary school teacher and volunteer archaeologist and education officer at the Port Arthur Historic Site in Tasmania, Sarah Stockwin blogs about why history has a serious image problem and how educators can turn boring on its head.
