booked tours

FM station transmitting from 1st of September to the 3rd of October
Hello Roger,
Here are the proposal regarding dates. We are looking at a little longer this year. We plan to have the FM station transmitting from 1st of September to the 3rd of October.
I will get Rod to discuss with you regarding some sort of compensation for the use of the lighthouse. Probably something similar to last year.

OLR Visit

10:00am on Wednesday, now 11th October
That’s great Donna
Climbing the old lighthouse is the slowest part of the process
for 7 groups of 3 students, allowing 10 minutes each is 70 minutes
We could split the group into two, with one doing the Signal Station
and the other the 1896 lighthouse and Generator Shed (which has the old lens)
When you visit, you could decide if you want them to go out on the balcony of the old lighthouse
(with Grade 2s they generally don’t)
Thanks again Roger.
Let's make 10:00am on Wednesday, 4th October, as the date for our visit. Approximately how long should we allow at the lighthouse?

Hi Donna
Yes, we could arrange that
There would be a small charge of $2:00 per student
And I am sure you could arrange for some adults to accompany the students
On the subject of light, we have a fourth order lens of the type installed in the old lighthouse in 1896 which would be of interest
There is more information at

Hi Roger,
I phoned your contact number today and left a message about taking our year 5 students to the Caloundra Lighthouse.
On the website it states that the public can visit the lighthouse on alternate Saturdays. Is there any possibility that someone could avail themselves on a week day to allow the students the opportunity to walk the lighthouse? The context for learning is around Science, Technology and Engineering. We have a copy of the narrative "The Old Lighthouse" in our library and will also be using this to build students literacy skills. I think that the real life experience of visiting the lighthouse will enhance the learning and help the student in their design challenge.
Thank you for considering this request.
Kind regards,
