Get involved

“Eco Schools membership has significantly increased the authenticity of learning experiences for the students at our school. Children have been engaged in real life learning. Their ability to work in groups and creatively problem solve real-life challenges has been greatly enhanced. The new Australian Curriculum delivery can be supported greatly by joining up to Eco Schools and I urge all schools to give it serious consideration. Benefits to the school also include great savings to the budget. In one year our school reduced its utilities bill by $10,000 with student-led initiatives. Teachers and students also report higher levels of student engagement across all key learning areas as a result of being involved in the program.”
