Touched by the Earth
Engaging local students and connecting them with the environment through a year-long cross-curricular program.
Informed by the pilot Art of Learning program conducted during 2010, and continuing in 2012-14. Touched by the Earth involves students in cross-curriculum studies and research in geography, history and science enabled through the arts.This enrichment program is aimed at immersing students in the rich environmental, historical and cultural heritage of Bundanon Trust.
Integral to the program is the opportunity for the students to be involved with artists and scientists involved with Bundanon Trust’s SITEWORKS program. We engage the students in hands on learning connected to their curriculum. This program has been supported by the University of Wollongong and The Australia Council for the Arts.
