This teacher uses the school garden as a centerpiece for engaging students in science. To support the program, an ethnobiologist works with the teacher and the students to draw upon cultural and local scientific knowledge to stimulate student interest. The program focuses on developing transferable skills to prepare all students for a range of opportunities in the Katherine region.
MacFarlane Primary School is one of five primary schools located within Katherine, and one of six schools that form part of a wider system, based on geographical groupings, known as the Rivers Cluster.
