Gateway School pupils take a virtual trip to Australia

Posted on: 16 Mar 2015

Pupils from Gateway School recently took part in a unique, interactive webinar allowing them to take a virtual trip to Australia, from their classrooms.

The first of its kind in the UK, the show was led by Australian Conservation Group, ‘Save The Bilby Fund’ and was broadcast live from Queensland, Australia. Children aged four to six, joined CBeebies children’s television character Boj on a journey through wildlife parks, to meet animals such as a koala bear, Tasmanian devil and a bilby.

The children were invited to ask questions to Boj, a carton bilby (an Australian marsupial) to learn more about conservation.

Sue La Farge, Headteacher at Gateway School said: “The children loved being able to interact live with Kevin from conservation team ‘Save The Bilby’ and had plenty of questions to ask. It was a great way to learn about a different environment. Should Boj want us to travel to Australia with him again, I’m sure the children would be very keen.”
