All WA Gould League programs are fully supervised by our wildlife educators and fully compliant with Department of Education Excursion Policy. In all programs students will be taken through a complete learning process. This includes gathering information, comparing and contrasting, analysing, synthesising, and finally asking the 'what if' questions of hypothesis. These 2 hour programs are based on the CF and cater for all education levels. All programs are interactive and activity-based and have been developed by qualified and experienced teachers.
All programs have pre-visit and post-visit activities available online. Students' observations at the Wildlife Centre, and their interpretation and expression of these observations will vary widely. Some students, for example, will tend to notice certain rhythms of movement, others will notice numbers and patterns. These different capacities can be referred to as 'intelligences'. The philosophy behind the activities at Herdsman Lake Wildlife Centre is to allow for different learning styles of students to cater for Multiple Intelligences.

Nyungar Know How - "Djiong Nih Boordawan Wangkiny" ( look,listen, talk)
WA Gould League works closely with the descendants of the Balardong Nyungar people, traditional owners of the Herdsman Lake region.
Upon completion of Nyungar Know How, teachers will have a depth of knowledge and experience in Nyungar culture, language, and local Nyungar sites of cultural and historical significance. Teachers will be equipped with the tools to confidently design and deliver an Aboriginal Studies course that is relevant with strong ties to the local region linking Nyungar past and present.
