Species Notes

From Term 1 2017, Victorian government and Catholic schools will use the new Victorian Curriculum F-10. Curriculum related information is currently being reviewed and may be subject to change.

For more information on the curriculum, see:
The Victorian Curriculum F–10 - VCAA

​These documents provide teachers and students with basic information and guidance about the care and handling of identified animal species. It is assumed, that teachers have some experience and understanding of the animals they plan to use and where necessary will seek further information as these notes are not designed to be used in isolation.

VSAEC expects all teachers using animals in their teaching to have a thorough knowledge of the husbandry and facilities required for the species in their care.
