OUR INSPIRING PROGRAMS
Our educational wildlife experiences are developed around the Victorian Curriculum so we hope this makes it easier for you to choose a program and plan our visit to complement the topics you’re covering in your classroom.
We can’t wait to join with you in helping to shape a generation of better humans through one of our eight inspiring primary school incursions:
WHY OUR SCHOOL INCURSIONS ROCK!
We introduce students and teachers to creatures they may never have even heard of. For instance, Pano, our 1.5m Yellow-spotted Monitor is sure to make your jaw drop! Or get up close and personal with Dave, our fluffy, Long-nosed Potoroo! What is a Potoroo you ask? There is only one way to find out! Why not choose Reptile Encounters for your next school incursion? Check out just some of the benefits listed below!
