South Australian Home-schoolers celebrated learning in nature with Canoe the Coorong at Happy Valley Reservoir.
The kayak guides helped make the day a success with their relaxed yet professional manner. Although water safety was their priority, the Home-schoolers came away from the event having had a tonne of fun and were truly engaged.
Thanks Canoe the Coorong team.
