Global Literacies


Global Literacies is about being literate in ways that allow children and families to identify, interpret, create and communicate knowledge. It’s all about understanding, engaging and communicating in an interconnected world. 



  • Art – Join us in creARTivity for a hands-on play-based art experience designed to inspire the mind and excite the senses.
  • Story Time – It’s story time at the Discovery Space. Grab a seat and read along to some stories from around the world.
  • Discovery Activity – Everyone loves our activities! This term, we’ll be running activities that explore and celebrate global literacies.

Join us for Movement Monday to experience active play and on Thursday to explore our STEAM Room where we THINK – MAKE – TRY during our Discovery Activity. 

All activities are FREE after entry!!




Our COVIDSafe measures remain in place. Session numbers will remain capped and may be adjusted to ensure the safety and comfort of visitors and staff.
