The EcoCentre provides a wide range of sustainability excursion activities covering waste, water, food, biodiversity, climate change and energy allowing you to tailor your excursion to match your curriculum needs, inquiry topic and student projects.
The activities delivered through our sustainability excursions will provide your students with hands-on experiences where they learn about resource consumption, lifestyle choices and actions they can take relating to waste, water, biodiversity, energy, food and climate change.
This program can be tailored to suit different levels of understanding, chosen in partnership with teachers at your school to meet the learning outcomes of your curriculum inquiry topic and big questions.
