Learning Resources

Educational programs and learning resources have been developed for Year levels 2, 3, 5 & 6.

The programs are based around a school excursion to the Tramway Heritage Walking Track in Buderim. They were developed by education consultant Janis Hanley and supported by funding from the Sunshine Coast Council’s Heritage Levy, Resourcing the Region Grant.
