The maximum number of students you can book into any single guided program session is 75 (3 groups). If you have more than 75 students you will need to book multiple sessions.
Do's and don'ts
- DO wear appropriate clothing and footwear for outdoor locations during the tour.
- DO bring a hat. Students will be invited to remove sun hats in the Sanctuary as a mark of respect.
- Bags should be left on the bus if possible as this saves time in cloaking them inside the building.
- DO bring cut lunches and eat them on grassed areas, weather permitting.
- No flash photography.
- No using of pens or textas. Pencils are permitted.
Supervision and behaviour
We rely upon teachers and parent helpers to supervise students and to ensure appropriate standards of behaviour. These include:
- speaking quietly
- listening to other speakers
- refraining from touching displays
- and being considerate of other visitors
