Junior school

Harbour Watch is able to offer  tailored programs to suit a range of year levels and subjects. Investigations allow students to engage with syllabus inquiry skills from a range of subject areas. Harbour Watch is well suited in geography and science however can be delivered with a cross-curricular focus to suit mathematics, history and English with an environmental focus. Harbour Watch programs inherently align with Science as Human Endeavour, Science Inquiry skills and Geographical Inquiry and skills. We have identified units of work from year 2 to year 6 curriculum that would suit a Harbour Watch investigation
