Virtual Excursion Package

We are excited to announce, that due to popular demand, our Education team has developed two curriculum-based Virtual Excursion Packages for Primary Schools!

Our programs are uniquely personal and will allow students to take a video tour of the park, engage with our educators, ask and answer questions, and consolidate knowledge in an optional unit of work.

This package can be accessed by students and teachers at home during the online learning period, or at school, once students return. We strongly feel the importance of providing this high-quality alternative to physical excursions, which are unable to run at this time.

We are offering both Custom and General program options based on the needs of Schools and community groups.

GENERAL PROGRAM: PRIMARY

This immersive experience includes 3 parts

  1. Virtual Excursion – Video Tour of Moonlit Sanctuary
    You will be sent our Video tour; either the Foundation to Grade 2 video or the Grade 3 to 6 video. These Video tours support curriculum goals for these levels. See our iconic native wildlife up-close, hosted by our engaging zoo educators.
  1. Q&A session – 1 hr video chat
    After watching the tour, students have a chance to follow up with a Zoo Educator, ask questions, and check understanding (via Webex, Teams, Google Meet, Zoom or your chosen platform).
  1. Resource pack – Pick your class Animal ambassador
    Dive deep into one of three quirky animal characters at Moonlit Sanctuary (you decide which). Discover their history, their everyday lives, and how we ensure they stay happy and healthy.
    Package includes a collection of worksheets and accompanying videos. As learners progress, they will develop a connection to Australia’s unique wildlife and landscapes, through the lens of the school’s chosen animal ambassador.

This is what Teachers have said about our program

The incursion was great and the kids loved it. The video was fantastic and the kids were engaged the whole time. We came up with questions as a group after that and I found that made it flow well when the Zoo Educator came on to answer the questions later.  Most of them had a turn of asking a question. The Zoo Educator was super, she answered all their questions, even the odd ones!!!

… they went away and completed a writing activity about the incursion. Their responses to the incursion through their writing have all been really positive.

Thank you so much for today!

We absolutely loved the Virtual Excursion of Moonlit Sanctuary!
The students were so engaged the entire time. They really enjoyed the opportunity to ask questions, which were answered by very knowledgeable staff who are passionate about the wildlife and educating students.
We are now so excited to actually visit in person and check out the sanctuary.
We highly recommend this experience, especially for Year 3 students.
Thank you May and team!
