Council is continuing to support local schools with environmental education by providing resources/information, hosting events and delivering presentations to students.
By providing a quarterly newsletter to schools, Council can better inform principals and teachers on all the great environmental education services we can offer with the aim to reach as many students as possible.
Wingecarribee Shire Councils’ flagship schools’ environmental education day is getting a makeover this year with the event to be held at Camp Wombaroo on two separate days, the first is already fully booked out and the second will be held in November (date TBC) for Year 5-6 students.
The event will focus on supporting students learn how they can live in an environmentally sustainable way and tying it back to nature through a series of practical workshops.
Due to the nature of the event changing format and unknown COVID restrictions, Schools Environment Day will be running at reduced capacity and limited numbers in 2022 compared to previous years.
