This excursion has been temporarily CANCELLED due to the weather forecast.  We will notify you of the new date as soon as it is rescheduled.

As part of our Inquiry unit: Our Future Earth (Managing Places and Environments in a Sustainable Way), we will be visiting Merri Creek on Tuesday the 5th September.
