Measuring sandy soil performance

Newbery Park Primary School has taken learning out of the classroom and into the landscape with the support of a Limestone Coast Grassroots Grant. The funding allowed children to experience excursions with local Elders and connect to nature.

Why was the project important?

Being able to support on country learning for children is so valuable. Being able to show children first-hand how to care for our environment is very important for the next generation. The students embraced being out on country and learnt about local culture and history.

How did the Grassroots Grant help?

The Limestone Coast Grassroots Grant funded the students to learn out on country. Students were able to learn about culture and history from local Elders in our community while on their country.
