We have just wrapped up a year of excellent educational programming in Wanganui schools with a Solar Sausage Sizzle at Castlecliff School...
and a site visit (and solar sausage sizzle) from Ngamatea and Aberfeldy Schools.
We, The ECO School, are grateful to the Wanganui District Council for funding these awesome programmes and the Sustainable Whanganui Trust for administrative support. And I don't see the children complaining.
Our programme design is based on the latest research in environmental and sustainability education. I can say this with confidence having attended an international research symposium earlier this year across the Tasman.
International Invitational Symposium on Environmental Education Research
Queenscliff, Australia, July 2011
We seek to develop programmes that are responsive to teacher's needs in order to maximize students' learning across the school curriculum. We believe our programmes are equal in quality to the best sustainability education initiatives anywhere in the world at a fraction of the cost. And we hope that we'll be able to continue and expand our offerings during the 2012 school year.
