Here at Hensman Street Elementary we love our community. Once a week our children in Kindy to Year 3 embark on a different type of schooling. Predominately fuelled by the children's interest we have school at a local community venue to discover more about the environments which surround us. We focus on an area for a term to see the changes in nature the flora and fauna, to discover something that has been in our wonderings or to help rehabilitate an area of our environment.
Over the course of a year we will discover four local areas that the children are interested in learning more about. We share this journey with some local experts to help deepen our knowledge through hands on learning in real life situations.
Recently we have explored Zoo School, Bush School, River School and Beach School. Ranging from Point Walter to the City of South Perth.
Our Pre-Kindy children don't miss out as we get them out and about once a semester to one of the venues to start the wonderings for future and further learning.
