Through our Museum Learning Program we deliver a range of quality educational programs focussing on local history and geography. Find out more below.
Museum Learning Programs
We offer programs for students in Year 2 and Year 3 which provide unique learning experiences. Students are able to connect with the local history of the site through history, geography and science based activities.
Each program consists of one core or mandatory session and then you can choose from one of the other sessions to complete your program.

Cost and Size of Groups
The Museum Learning Program costs $9.00 per student. Teachers and parents are free.
The program caters for up to 50 students at one time, with two programs running concurrently as the group of 50 if split into two separate groups. Please have your students allocated to a group prior to their visit.
The programs run for 50 minutes with a 10 minute break:
- Morning session 9.30am to 11.30am
- Afternoon session 12.30pm to 2.30pm
We encourage schools to book two groups of 50 (100 students) for the whole day. Alternatively you could come for the morning session, and afterwards have lunch and enjoy the parklands and bush walks.

What to Bring on the Day
Schools need to bring their own first aid kits and sunscreen.
Students are recommended to bring:
- A hat
- Drink bottle
- Snack or lunch for full day itineraries
We will supply students with pencils, clip boards and a range of worksheets.
Supervision of Students
It is the responsibility of the school to organise a supervisory team which is responsible for the behaviour of students during the visit. The supervisory team must accompany the students throughout the visit to actively monition behaviour and intervene as necessary.
During your visit to Wireless Hill Park, our staff and volunteers may lead, demonstrate, perform and present activities but will not supervise students.
Parent helpers are required to lead small group activities under the guidance of program staff and teachers. The program works on a ratio of 1 parent: 6 students.
