Educational School Tours and Nature Programme
In the summer of 2008, the Educational School Tours and Nature Programme was launched. It was part-funded by a kind donation from Dieter Mennekes, a Germany businessman. He paid for a gazebo (open air class room) and nursery for native plant restoration. The response was great from the schools that participated.
The students are given a guided tour through the gully, followed by a hands on nature based activity. Most of the students stay on for lunch to relax and enjoy their surroundings.
Teachers discuss with the director of the programme appropriate activities that would suit their particular group. There are also picnic tables, where students can have lunch after these activities.
An educational tour is provided by Welchman Hall Gully for 45 minutes followed by a 30-minute nature activity designed to coincide with what the students are learning in the classroom.
