Excursions Engage Active Minds
The school excursions are an unbelievable experience for all, as many often have a predisposed fear thanks to the media, it is wonderful to watch the courage emerge from the students. Education at Irukandji is delivered with a fun, hands on approach that creates a personal, memorable experience for both children and their teachers. The guided tour, has a focus on conservation, and creates an opportunity for behaviour change – instilling a sense of stewardship for the environment. Thus, Irukandji staff play a vital role in fulfilling the attractions mission by helping children build emotional connections to marine animals, teaching them to understand the natural world and actively engaging them in conservation initiatives such as Take3fortheSea.
