Year 2 Excursion: CERES

24 August 2023

Our Year 2 students visited CERES this week which is an environmental education centre by the Merri and Darebin Creeks on Wurundjeri country, Melbourne. CERES (pronounced series) stands for Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies.

Our students have been learning about Indigenous perspectives during their Humanities lessons. The excursion was a great opportunity for them to identify and connect with elements of Aboriginal culture:

The Year 2’s explored ways of keeping ancient knowledge and tradition alive through a selection of activities including Tiddalik stories, ochre painting, Merri Merri cultural walk, and tasting different bush foods derived from native plants.
