Glenthorne a focus for local schools

The past couple of months have been busy with local schools visiting the Glenthorne property. Find out more about their visits.

Students from Sheidow Park Primary School, Seacliff Primary School, Hallett Cove R-12 School and Hallett Cove South Primary School descended onto the Glenthorne property recently to plant native shrubs and grasses and celebrate World Environment Day.

The visit on 5 June coincided with the state government’s announcement to increase investment in South Australia’s national parks as part of the state budget, which includes an additional $2.5 million for Glenthorne National Park.

More recently, Year 12 tourism students from Aberfoyle High School visited Glenthorne as part of a field trip.

The students were tasked with examining the property and identifying possible activities and infrastructure that could be developed to make Glenthorne a popular destination for the local community.

The students will use the information they gathered during the visit to complete a practical task that forms part of their SACE Stage 2 studies.

Keep an eye on future editions of this e-news to find out more about the launch of the new Glenthorne Schools Program.
