Imagine a generation of innovative and motivated young people, who instinctively think and act sustainably.
Enviroschools is a programme aimed at creating sustainable schools and has developed into a national programme and is being implemented in schools throughout the country.
Enviroschools is a whole school approach where staff, students and the wider school community work together to integrate environmental education into key areas of school life.
The school is supported by an Enviroschools facilitator.
