Nature Nurturers – Helping Koalas Thrive

Students in Year 7 at TNS developed their understanding of the threats faced by koala populations in the local area using Koala Smart lesson plans before undertaking an incursion with Claire Wheeler from Kid Biz Academy to learn and develop entrepreneurial skills.

The project aimed to increase student and community awareness of the threats to local koala populations and provide funds to support protection efforts. Over $1000 was raised at an actual business fair at the school and the money donated to the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital for much needed equipment. Some of their products pictured below.
