“As a very small country school these video experiences are perfect for our kids.”

Lyndhurst Public School

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! 

In this workshop speaking, listening and storytelling skills will be built 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
