HIDDEN VALLEY EXCURSION
Bush Rangers is a program that aims to teach East Kimberley Academy students respect for themselves, respect for their county and respect for their culture. Today’s lesson and activity were based around environmental impacts. To highlight local impacts the group trekked into Hidden Valley Springs.
The boys spent time listing down and observing possible impacts to the area and trying to suggest ways to minimise and prevent them.
The group begins it’s walk into Hidden Valley. The boys made sure they knew who ‘tail end charlie’ (the last person) was and tried to control the pace of the group.
Local Mirrawong man and class AIEO Ephrem Kennedy helps the boys to come up with examples of impacts and solutions for the area. What a beautiful water hole to teach next to!
Boys enjoy a swim to cool off
Following the lesson the boys enjoyed a swim while Cameron from Clontarf and Educational Assistant Kim cooked up a sausage sizzle for us all.
