The Sustainable Schools NSW program supports schools to take a whole of school and community approach to improving sustainability in their school, you can:
Engage primary students in an exploration of place through creating artworks and writing artists statements. Building a connection and meaning to place in young people is the foundation for sustainability.
The following learning sequence was developed to raise awareness of how student actions can make a difference. It can be used at the end of each school term. Students can learn sustainability actions as schools go through the operation process of shutting down systems and appliances for the holiday period. The teacher resource provides background to the student activities following a simplified five step sustainability process. The student resource provides surveys and activities.
