Pirrku Explorers : out of the book, into the garden. Look at some amazing patterns in nature with the noticing tools in the Explorer Vests.

Pirrku Explorers is a social session with a range of educational activities suitable for children approximately 2 – 7 years and their carers. Each month we explore a new theme, discover something new and make friends playing along the way. The Kaurna word for story is pirrku and Pirrku Garden is the name of the garden area we are establishing at the Evanston Gardens Library.

Pirrku Explorers takes place on the first Friday of each month.

This month we search for patterns in nature using the noticing tools from the State Library of South Australia’s Exploring My World kits. We will use our senses to explore the natural world, and turn our discoveries into stories.

This event is proudly part of LibrariesSA’s Firstival and Plastic Free July.

This program takes place (weather depending) outside in the newly established Pirrku Garden at the rear of the Evanston Gardens Library. The area has dappled shade so we recommend hats and sunscreen. If the weather is not suitable we will relocate inside the library.

The Pirrku Garden project has received funding from the Department of Education’s Local Government Early Childhood Community Innovation Grant administered by the Local Government Association of South Australia. Views and findings associated with this project are expressed independently and do not necessarily represent the views of the Government of South Australia or the Local Government Association of South Australia.
