Art & Nature studies
The Phi School runs art and nature study classes every Thursday at the Currawong Bush Centre in Doncaster East.

Operating in the extensive bush landscape of Currwong Bush Park, these classes offer an opportunity for students to develop a stronger relationship with their own nature through being in nature with others. While students will be challenged to develop skills and knowledge, the setting is low pressure and friendly where children can work at a level suited to their individual capacity.
* Students are welcome to stay, play and eat between 12 and 1pm
