Join other homeschooling families during National Home Education Week for a special screening of Gary Caganoff ‘s documentary National Pass. We are very lucky to have the documentary presented by the film maker Gary (also homeschooling dad) who has generously offered his time and a free screening of his film. For those who are keen we will then walk the National Pass track together with a little time for lunch at the base of the falls and fun along the way.
Documentary Screening: Saturday 20th November 10.30am – YHA Katoomba – 207 Katoomba Street Katoomba.
Please bring $10 per family to help contribute towards the venue hire for the screening. If we get more families than have already expressed interest the fee will be less. There will be DVDs of Gary’s films for sale for those who are keen. These are $20 each.
Walk: Make your way to outside the Conservation Hut in Wentworth Falls after the film screening. We will wait for everyone so that we can all head off on the walk together. If you don’t plan to come on the walk please let someone know on the day. We will finish the walk at Wentworth Falls picnic area. We can either all walk back to the Conservation Hut or do a car shuffle with the drivers. Refreshments are available at the Conservation Hut.
PLEASE NOTE: The walk will take approximately 2 hours. There is a huge set of stone steps to ascend near the end, to the top ofthe falls. So be prepared for a puffing 15 mins or so, then up to the car park. Remember to bring sun protection, wet weather protection, snow gear, scuba diving gear – you know the general Mountains everyday stuff , water, food and of course cameras!
To express your intention in coming along (if you haven’t already) or for any other enquiries please get in touch with Sarah at email@example.com or on 0406 268 588
