Principals and teachers

We are committed to working with our local schools and our community to enable them to integrate sustainability in their everyday lives and reduce our individual environmental impact.

Supporting Bayside schools

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 Bronnie with any enquiries or feedback you have at bwalsh [at] bayside.vic.gov.au (subject: Bayside%20schools%20enquiry)

This network connects teachers who share an interest in the natural environment, provides access to resources, and seeks to help teachers educate their students on the world around them. For more information about the network or to register to attend the next meeting contact the network coordinator via ten [at] ecocentre.com (subject: Bayside%20Teachers%20Environment%20Network) (Port Phillip EcoCentre).
