Explore the themes of inclusion and respectful relationships on this engaging and hands-on excursion at Symbio Wildlife Park. Through interactive presentations with animals and two guided walks through various animal enclosures, students will observe and analyse the effects of actions that enhance or disrupt relationships using animals to highlight these themes. Let us address the issue of bullying in a non-threatening and interactive way, while promoting and highlighting the importance of respectful relationships for all living things. On this excursion, students will learn the importance of being inclusive and discover how their own uniqueness shapes who they are. Students will discuss how empathy, inclusion and respect are important in their relationships and how their own actions can impact themselves and others.
