Glenthorne a focus for local schools

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.
