School Programs

School/Community Tours

At MCSL, students of all ages (Child Care Centres,Years K-12, Stages 1 to 6, plus tertiary students) and community groups can experience first hand how we can all help society 'go green' in both our built and the natural environment.  Your introduction to sustainability starts when you are dropped off at the Centre's car park - let us open your eyes to the many features this seemingly barren asphalt area has hidden from view. Then as you walk along the gravel Path to Sustainability you'll sense the wishes of wise children and feel the peace and tranquillity that being surrounded by nature brings.  We can tailor tours to address any curriculum need and can help you plan a sustainability audit for your own home and school. Let us teach you some good gardening tips and perhaps you can help us out with a few things too!

General MCSL site tours lasts one to one and a half hours and cost $5.00 per person/student, let us know the date your group is planning on coming to the Centre and we'll organise a guided tour for you.
