The Special Interest Group in Planning and Programming at the Flinders View Primary School, Port Augusta, have devised a teaching program that links The National Statements and Profiles and The Key Competencies to The Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden. Thus, a school-visit to the AALBG may be prepared and undertaken within the parameters of the curriculum. The document consists of a theoretical section and a set of activities and worksheets for students.
