We are committed to working with our local schools and community to enable them to integrate sustainability in their everyday lives and reduce our individual environmental impact.
We provide a range of support tools to schools. In addition to this, we offer training and situational support, including meetings with Principal and teacher groups, and assistance in funding applications.
We are keen to hear from teachers about how else we can improve our programs and support you on your journey to sustainability. Please email Claire Brace from Environmental Sustainability with any enquiries or feedback you have at cbrace [at] bayside.vic.gov.au
