To celebrate the ‘2019 Year of the Tandem Bicycle’ (not really but we need an excuse) the Hughes family are going on a big adventure. Andrew, Nicola, Hope and Wilfy (that’s us) are riding right around Australia, and this epic jounney has a serious twist. Our big challenge, apart from exploring the fabulous plants, animals and places of Australia, is to find out about Reconciliation. What does it mean? What’s it got to do with me? How can we all get involved? It’s Adventure Learning so schools everywhere are invited to join us. There will be LIVE reports each week with interviews and adventurous tales, awesome lessons on Geography and Science, forums for teachers and students, prizes and surprises.
Where will this journey take us? What will we discover? Who will we meet?
What: A 10 000km real life and live Adventure Learning project for all primary and high schools anywhere in the world. Online and printable resources for classroom use.
When: The rubber hits the road from February to December 2019.
Who: The Swag Family, schools, classroom teachers, home educators, and the amazing Australians we meet along the way.
Why: To motivate, support and extend students as they become adventurous learners... and it'll be fun.
What now: We're working on the new website and curriculum now and it should be ready by November 2018. We're keeping people up to date through our e-newsletter in the meantime.
