It includes syllabus links, lesson by lesson teaching sequences, suggested Project Based Learning (PBL) driving questions and supporting texts and resources.

    Additional Help

    Principal of Penrith Lakes Environmental Education Centre (EEC), Mr Branimir Lazendic, a passionate advocate for sustainability, is also happy to further support individual teachers, or whole stage teams, in their quest to help Daniel and William Clarke save the orangutans.  “We started with 4 schools and 14 classes in Term 1 and by Term 3, we are now up to 8 schools and 36 classes and the interest from other schools is still growing fast. The educational and life skills value of this project for students has exceeded all my expectations and I’m thoroughly enjoying the journey with other teachers!
