The Primary Australian Literacy Mathematics & Science (PALMS) Program aims to enrich and support the teaching of earth science from Kindergarten to Year 6 across Australia. This will be achieved by providing, within the mandated Earth and Space Science curriculum, hands-on activities integrating aspects of Chemical Sciences, Physical Sciences and Biological Sciences as well as relevant components of English, Mathematics and other subjects into teaching packages that can be easily accessed by teachers of Kindergarten to Year 6. The program is an initiative of Australian Earth Science Education with the support of Santos.
The Herdsman Lake Discovery Centre is located within the Herdsman Lake Regional Park. The centre is managed by the WA Gould League, a not-for-profit organisation committed to nurturing a passion for nature through education, innovation and communication. Herdsman Lake is the largest wetland in the inner metropolitan area, supporting a diversity of wildlife that is a rare occurrence in an urban setting. Herdsman Lake is also a valuable cultural heritage site. The Nyoongar people call it Noogenboro and used it as a food source in the past.
