Children’s University offers educational experiences for children aged between 7 and 14 years and volunteering opportunities for 15-18 year olds outside of school and recognises their achievements through the award of formal certificates and graduations.


The model leverages local educational and learning activity providers (including sports clubs, museums, galleries, school clubs) and has a strong emphasis on experience as a significant learning tool, acknowledging the value of the range of different learning experiences and environments in which children engage.

Each child is issued with a Passport to Learning in which the hours of each validated activity are recorded. Once they have reached the required number of hours children will graduate from the Children’s University. Certificates are presented at graduation ceremonies held in high profile locations.

The VIC has developed a Discovery Trail activity that takes in the history, features and sights of the Renmark Paringa area, with the start and end point of your journey being the VIC. The activity should take approximately one hour, where you will learn more about Renmark Riverfront and what makes this area so special! Don’t forget to have your Passport to Learning stamped off once you have completed the activity and take the time to discover what else you can see and do in Renmark and Paringa while you are in the Visitor Centre.

Please download and print the activity sheet here to complete the tasks.
