Welcome to Tinaroo Environmental Education Centre, where we believe that every student can play a part in caring for our fragile and beautiful planet. We believe that all students can learn to live in a sustainable way that ensures they leave a small ecological footprint on our planet.
Children are growing up in an ever-changing world and need to learn to be navigators of their own life's course. Navigating that course requires a special set of skills, knowledge and a caring attitude. We attempt to provide these special skills and knowledge through a range of inspirational and motivational activities.
The motto and philosophy of this centre is encompassed in the statement:
Learning to enjoy and care for our beautiful environment
We would hope that students who visit the centre enjoy the natural environment with all that it has to offer in the way of fun activities and leave with an appreciation of and understanding of the importance of caring for this environment.
To achieve this, we provide a range of activities that include both Outdoor and Environmental Education – the outdoor pursuits assist students to learn skills that will enable them to safely enjoy our natural environment – skills such as canoeing, camping and navigating. The environmental activities provide students with the attitude, skills and knowledge that will enable them to tread lightly on our planet.
