BOOK NOW FOR THE VIDEO CONFERENCE ON JUNE 29
We are very pleased to announce that the brilliant Mary Bell from the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney will be running a Virtual Classroom on four threatened plants, especially for the competition. Any school can join the video conference and this year the Botanic Garden have donated the class for FREE to any school in NSW! Their staff have expertise on plants that is second to none and children can learn about why these plants are threatened. The Gardens will also be 'drawing' on the expertise of our committee member Penny who is an art teacher, so children will also receive help with how to compose their artworks for the competition. Your children's school can book the Video conference for 11.30 or 2pm on June 29. The class lasts for around 45 minutes. It's a good idea to book early.
