Exploring an international space station, a visit to the Grand Canyon, a face-to-face encounters with a dinasaur and time at Taronga Zoo - there has been no shortage of adventure for students at one Highlands school.
Kangaloon Public School students have been engaging in their lessons with the aid of Virtual Reality (VR).
Technology such as VR and lessons focusing on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) have enabled students to gain and apply knowledge, deepen their understanding and develop creative and critical thinking skills within an authentic context.
The lessons have taken the students around the globe and some times out of this world
Their experiences will be used to help them design and develop their own Virtual Tours and dream classroom.
The school's new principal Jenelle Lawrence said this was part of the rich and engaging curriculum that was available to students at Kangaloon Public School.
By developing curiosity and knowledge of STEM disciplines students made connections and saw the relevance for future career pathways.
"Quality teaching and learning are the focus of every classroom at Kangaloon Public School. It is imbedded into our school plan and is the focus of our professional learning," Ms Lawrence said.
