Sustainable Schools Community
Leap into the Sustainable Schools NSW community! The NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change and the NSW Department of Education and Training have jointly developed the Sustainable Schools NSW website. It aims to support all schools, their partners and the community in realising a positive environmental vision within a quality educational context. The website is an interactive site providing resources, curriculum, teaching and learning materials, information on grants and funding opportunities, case studies and stories from other schools.
