Bush School is a hands on experiential learning program based on regular visits to the same local bush and woodland in Centennial Parklands for an extended period.

During 2016 and 2017, before leaving for Arnhem Land, I led two weekly Bush School programs, one for 2.5 to 5 year olds together with a parent or guardian, the other for home schooled children aged 6 to 10.

Bush School is based on research and concepts from international best practice in nature education as well as current education models such as Forest Schools and Nature Kindergartens. Although the program has been developed and informed by international best practice it is a uniquely Australian concept in that it is based on the heritage and ecology of our unique landscape.
