Organising an excursion to the WNPEEC
The links on this page will help you in organising your excursion, along with where you can stay overnight and other things to see and do in the local area.
If you decide to visit the WNPEEC have a look at the Programs we offer on this website. If you see something you like, complete the Booking Form on the left hand side of this page. If you need further information then give us a ring on 02 6825 4302. We’ll check to see if we are available on the dates you require and take down a few details how we can best assist you and your students.
Before your visit to WNPEEC we ask that a Student Welfare Form (docx) be filled in and returned so that WNPEEC staff are aware of any medical and other welfare issues.
Before the excursion you will be required to complete a Risk Management Plan. Click here for assistance with completing the Plan and risk management forms for activities at WNPEEC.
Low Waste Lunch
Please encourage students to bring a Low Waste Lunch for their visit to WNPEEC. We would prefer students take their rubbish home with them. We do have a compost bin for compostable rubbish. A Low Waste lunch may include:
– sandwiches wrapped in grease-proof paper.
– fresh fruit. It comes with its own compostable packaging.
– biscuits or cake in a paper bag that can be composted also.
– a drink in a reusable container. This can be washed and used again.
As many of our programs are run predominately outside, we may have to postpone your visit if the weather looks unfavourable. Heavy rain and strong winds make outside programs potentially dangerous.
