Schools are encouraged to undertake a range of activities within their “reach”.
For most activities, schools are able to organise and undertake them independently themselves, with RiverConnect staff available to provide advice and sugestions. On some occasions RiverConnect staff can assist with the activities.
For more information about how RiverConnect can assist with school curriculum activities, please check the links below or contact the RiverConnect Education Project Officer.

COVID19 Lockdown resources
This page contains activities and links to websites which teachers and students can use to assist their learning during the COVID19 Lockdown. Activities are able to be completed by students at home using their own backyards, balconies, nature strips or other places they are able to access whilst following current restrictions.
The Objective of the ‘Connecting Aboriginal People’ in the RiverConnect Project is: To provide programs, activities and facilities so that the whole community can understand and better appreciate the important historical and cultural significance this area holds for its traditional owners.
The Objective of the ‘Connecting Environment’ aspect in the RiverConnect Project is: To protect, repair, enhance and sustain important river, wetland and forest environments, so that current and future generations can understand and enjoy natural river and red gum forest environments.
The Flats is a significant cultural area located on the floodplain between Shepparton and Mooroopna. Interpretative signage was installed in 2013 to record the history for educational and tourism purposes.
