GET Training

Gumburu Environmental Teachers (GET) recently gathered at Gumburu for two days at our annual training weekend.  The event provides an opportunity to any teacher that is interested in supporting our Gumburu Catholic Environmental Education camps. We had a great weekend of learning, working together, sharing ideas and supporting new teachers to Gumburu. Our thanks to all of those that participated and to Holly for her work in consulting teachers and developing resources to support our schools with their camps.
