Our school has been using Sherwood Pines' provision for many years and have always found it to be first class. We have just returned from a full day of pond dipping, orienteering, bush craft

tree identification. We all had an amazing time. Big thank you to all the park rangers who made our visit safe, exciting and fun!!
