Relax, wonder and spark joy with our end of term Christmas Excursion package:

Joy – Spark joy and wonder by introducing your students to the underwater world. See their eyes light up as sharks swim overhead, schooling fish glisten and stars are placed in their hands. 

Giving – Give back to the planet by collecting and bringing in your recyclable plastics. AQWA has teamed up with green batch recycling to help reduce the amount of plastic waste in the ocean, while any money raised from containers for change is donated to the AQWA foundation to fund the rehabilitation of sick and injured turtles. During your excursion, students can visit our Turtle Pool to quietly observe the turtles we are caring for. Click here to view our Education Manager introduce the initiative and read the book ‘The Blue Giant’.

Light – Namaste – “the light in me bows to the light in you” Enrich your excursion experience with a half hour yoga session run by Gemma from Little Yoga Gems. This fun filled session with have your students giggling with joy as they transform in to marine creatures, while helping them to develop inner peace and calm.

Hope – Write your messages of hope for the New Year and attach them to our wishing fish.

Magic & Giving Thanks – Depending upon age group students will make: a Magic Wishing Wand, Kindness Christmas Bauble or Thank You Treasure Jar.  Students are encouraged to write the names of those they love, acts of everyday kindness that they can do to make others happy, things that bring them joy, their favourite memories from this year or things that they are thankful for; then wrap them to their wand / place them in their jar; choose an ocean treasure to include and sprinkle with sand from the bottom of the sea. If preferred, students can create their messages in class and bring them with them on the day by using this template (download). Older students can even use our code wheels to keep their messages secret.

Peace – Whole school / multi stream packages give teachers peace of mind with;

  • A reserved private air-conditioned space for your morning tea, lunch, activities and bag storage. Our Function Centre is your "bubble" for the day.
  • Enjoy ocean views and free coffee/tea for teachers.
