Event Overview: The Hospital Explorer Virtual Excursion is a new online version of the Hospital Explorer Program for Year 1 students, which has been running at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick (SCH) for over 15 years. The program aims to demystify the hospital environment and promote staying healthy, whilst exploring themes relevant to the school curriculum. Students will:
- learn about playing safely, preventing disease and making healthy choices
- use equipment to understand how the body works
- meet a real Doctor, Child Life Therapist and Physiotherapist who work at the hospital
- solve the mystery of what actually happens in hospital!

A Hospital Explorer resource box is sent out to schools prior to the excursion which contains the necessary equipment for students to participate in the program's activities. Schools can continue to use the Hospital Explorer Box to participate in future virtual excursions or to supplement their own teaching.

Virtual Excursion (free) + Hospital Explorer Box (compulsory first-time purchase*) $165 incl. GST and postage
