School groups

School Groups find the Bass and Flinders Centre educational and a great help with their history studies. We recommend that school groups which are often about 50 children to be split into two groups with one group of 25 visiting the Pilot Station museum and the other group of 25 doing the BnF Centre tours. We then split the those in the Centre , allowing one group to go on the Norfolk and the other group/s to do a treasure hunt where the students have to find various objects within the Centre.
. See the Typical Program which can be modified to suit time frames.

Fun & Educational

The students have great fun in participating in both the boarding of the Norfolk and the Scavenger hunt. An example of the day is shown to the right. Up to 50 children if they are visiting the Pilot Station as well, 25-30 is ample at Bass & Flinders at one time as it becomes unmanageable with too many on the Norfolk at one time.
