River Rangers

 

A group of 35 students from Years 5 & 6 have chosen to participate in the WA Cadets ‘River Rangers’ program. The program is hosted by the Swan River Trust and sponsored by the Department of Local Government and Communities.

River Rangers aims to empower students to make positive changes for their local communities, waterways & ultimately the Swan Canning Riverpark.

The program focuses on enquiry based action research and collaborative learning where students work in groups and are responsible for designing and carrying out projects connected to the Swan and Canning Riverpark and their local waterways.

Education for Sustainability underpins the River Ranger process and there is also a strong focus on developing teamwork, leadership, initiative and problem solving.

The program operates on Wednesday afternoons after school.
