To the Headmasters and Principals

Dear Sir or Madam

I am pleased to extend both you and any interested member of your staff, this invitation to visit and become personally acquainted with our nationally one-off educational facility in Hastings Point, Northern New South Wales.

Adventure Education as our facility is widely known is a unique, comprehensive field study and biological science focused co-curricular and extracurricular learning centre based in the grounds of the North Star Holiday Park.

The functional hub of Adventure Education is an equally unique, richly bio-diverse Museum of Marine Natural History that has evolved uninterrupted since 1971. Adventure Education is the extension of a 50-year long evolution that began as a combined school-based Field Study Centre, Museum and Underwater Research Group designed to prepare students for both a taste of adventure, as well as a lifetime of scientific pursuits. Today more than 85 schools of all categories and age groups (Mostly high school) visit us annually to extend both classroom academic studies and critical field study corroboration. As well Adventure Education is able to provide unique prerequisite programs to university studies in addition to being a foundation stone to future careers.

Adventure Education functions with a well-trained, qualified and experienced staff to educate and inspire students or provide in service programs for any members of your teaching staff should they require it.

Since 2000 we have been fortunate in securing the strong managerial professional services of Kerrie Trees. Her dedicated involvement as the centre’s facilitator has been instrumental in ensuring that Adventure Education has remained as one of the countries’ most viable Coastal Field Education Centre’s.

I look forward to meeting with you in the very near future to discuss any matters you may require relating to the benefits your school can gain from a field trip with us. Such benefits could arise from both, added educational options and social development activities. These may include single day visits as well as our many well embraced 2 to 4 days extended programs. All activities include educationally focused sessions in the Museum as well as field operations in all, or a selection of the variety of natural Eco systems all of which are within half a kilometre of our centre.

Your visit will include a complimentary Morning or Afternoon tea at the onsite café and a comprehensive tour of the facility including the Museum, Accommodation and Catering areas offered to students and staff.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, Ted Brambleby (founder, owner, director)  ph. 02 66 760817 or 0497251732 or Kerrie Trees (The Centre’s Facilitator) 0402549655 or email nraservices@bigpond.com so  arrangements can be made for your visit and to accommodate your specific needs.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Ted Brambleby
