The best environmental education happens in nature
Published on 27 January 2023
School’s back! All through Term 1 2023, The Briars’ Education Programs deliver Victorian curriculum approved education, all while enjoying their 230-hectare outdoor classroom.
The best environmental education happens in nature. What better way to learn than with hands-on education designed all the way from Foundation to Year 6?
The Briars have on offer six Biological Science programs, with availability throughout Term 1 every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with three time slots per day.
Exploring contemporary environmental challenges our future generations are facing, all bookable programs directly support Teacher’s classroom teaching.
In addition to schools experiencing programs that are engaging, highly educational and motivational, we’re also offering Animal Encounter programs where students interact with live Australian native animals. The program is available to be booked on 21 February, 7 and 21 March and 4 April 2023.
Looking for educational cultural programs? The Briars offer just that, with bookings available on 9, 16 and 23 March 2023.

“The Briars has always been and continues to be an invaluable location on the Peninsula. With the addition of a brand new Education Program that is aligned with the Victorian curriculum, our students and teachers can take advantage of engaging and motivating lessons.
