Services to Schools
Sustainable Schools provides a total package of support to schools, including face to face consultancy, professional development, specialist consultants, resources, website, accreditation and awards, assistance and support for planning, implementation and monitoring, and curriculum links and activities addressing key learning areas.
Skilled facilitators visit your school to help you find and achieve your shared vision through an introductory professional development workshop supported by quality resources.
Your Sustainable Schools consultant then works with your school to:
- set goals and create action plans for operations, engaging your school community, curriculum and building strong community links
- implement these action plans
- monitor and evaluate all the outcomes - social, educational and environmental
Sustainable Schools is designed to fully integrate into the daily operations and curriculum of the school.
Enquire how your school can get involved with Sustainable Schools.
