SA Museum Virtual Excursion
As a part of National Science Week, Rooms 7 and 30 were able to participate in a special program at South Australian Museum without leaving school by undertaking a ‘virtual excursion.’ This event included a museum tour, talk and online Q & A with marine biologists and supported Mrs Gehling’s the science program which is focussed on adaptations.
The ‘National Science Week’ school theme was Deep Blue: innovations for the future of our oceans, the museum made a video highlighting the unique coastal and marine habitats of our state through a tour of the Biodiversity Gallery and also gave a peak into, a place many people don't know about, the museum’s Science Centre which houses its natural science collections.
Students watched the video tour hosted by Leanne and Andrea, two of the museum’s staff, along with guest speaker Elaine, a marine biologist who shared extensive information about South Australia's marine habitats and the diverse range of life it supports.
Students learnt about South Australia’s very unique habitats, which include the beach, seagrass meadows, rocky reefs and the open ocean and how different living things have adapted and developed specific features to match them to the system of which they are a part of. Elaine also shared information about the development of exciting new research and technologies to support energy and food production from our oceans and reminded us about the different ways we can help to care for and protect oceans and marine biodiversity.
After some discussion, and brainstorming questions, students joined a live Q & A with Leanne and marine biologists Shirley and Elaine. Student questions covered many topics about their personal experiences of studying and working in marine biology to fishing and the impact of global warming. Students enjoyed the opportunity to hear from some experts, go behind the scenes and also ask our questions. You can see the Museum's short marine biodiversity video by clicking here.
It's a great resource to use in preparation for planning a visit to the Museum in person.

One of the most common stressors for parents and caregivers is managing their children's device or technology usage. This is true for most families, but particularly true for children with behavioural, social and emotional challenges.
Gaming can be fun but can also become all-consuming for our young people.
Are you concerned that your child may be having trouble regulating their time with gaming or that their gaming seems to be affecting other parts of their life like going to sleep, getting enough sleep, going to school, sports, hobbies, eating & drinking, friendships and relationships.
Developing Minds Psychology & Education have a great website that helps parents with many issues including this one. Some of the matters discussed relating to this topic include.
