A scavenger hunt adventure!
In our creative storytelling workshop, Hunting for Inspiration, students will be asked to collect a list of objects from around their home or classroom to inspire a fun and unique story, taking them on a scavenger hunt adventure!
This workshop will build speaking, listening and storytelling skills while working with a presenter to create an original story using their scavenged stimuli.
This workshop explores the structure and stages of narrative, while encouraging the development of original, imaginative story ideas inspired by a child’s own world.
Presented by Sydney Opera House

Sydney Opera House uses Zoom to deliver its Digital Creative Learning and Creative Leadership in Learning programs. The NSW Department of Education has approved the use of Zoom for all year levels.
Sydney Opera House maintains an enterprise licence for Zoom and secures its Zoom sessions by using passwords. Zoom protects participants’ privacy by letting them blur out everything in the camera’s field of view, except themselves. Sydney Opera House does not record these sessions through Zoom’s built-in recording feature or through other means except with participants’ consent.
To interact with Sydney Opera House using Zoom you need to either know the password for that specific session, or have the meeting link with the embedded password.
Check your camera and microphone are working so we can hear your class ok during the session!
To ensure your students get the most out of the experience, a Teachers’ Resource Pack is available for this program.
We recommend using these resources in advance of your digital excursion.
As the program is interactive, we recommend a maximum of 30 students in one classroom for the session.
If you have more than 30 students, please book multiple sessions under each class teacher’s name. If there are no slots available, contact our Creative Learning team at email@example.com or 02 9250 7770.
Each booking entitles you to one connection (meaning that all students will be joining the call from the one space). If you would like to book for multiple classrooms to attend at one time you will just need to make an additional booking and correctly record the number of students in each group.
Interactive events have just 6 slots available, so if you are unable to proceed with your booked session, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org at least two days prior. This gives another school the opportunity to engage in the program.
Bookers who fail to attend on their booked sessions without providing notice may be barred from further bookings or may be subject to a no-show fee.
Our on-demand program, including performances, workshops and talks, are available for a minimum of 10 days after the premiere. This gives you greater flexibility to watch at a time and date that’s convenient to your class. If you would really like to attend outside of the event dates, please contact the Creative Learning team on email@example.com and we will try our best to accommodate you.
