Nature for Wellbeing in schools

Professional Development for Teachers

The Royal Botanic Gardens has been running Health and Wellbeing in nature programs at both the Cranbourne and Melbourne sites for over several years.

This professional development session draws on the experience we have gained helping students to connect with nature in meaningful and mindful ways. It is designed to help teachers incorporate outdoor nature-based practices into their curriculum using easily accessible resources and local outdoor venues.

The afternoon will include:

  • Creative and sensory nature-based activities
  • Meditation and stretching session led by a qualified yoga nidra instructor Carolyn Shurey.
  • Nature Journaling- Release your inner creative as artist Claire Mosley leads you through a nature journaling workshop, drawing inspiration from the plants it likes to hide amongst and the sights, sounds and smells of the natural world.

Designed for Primary & Secondary School Teachers of all year levels.
