Let’s CELEBRATE in Term 3!

What do you do to celebrate sustainability at your school?

Celebrating sustainability and your achievements is a great way to make sustainability fun, involve people who don’t usually engage with your sustainability programs, as well as re-energising you and your students.

There are lots of great events happening during Term 3 2016 that you can get involved in to help you celebrate the amazing privilege of helping to change the world:

Planet Ark – Schools Tree Day

Friday, July 29th 2016
Hundreds and thousands of students plant over 1 million native trees, shrubs and grasses at more than 4,000 Tree Day events.

Host your own celebration

Term 3 2016

You can celebrate any way you want but we highly recommend you do more than a newsletter article or a presentation at assembly (which is not the stuff that makes people get excited about sustainability). How about planning some fun activities for students and staff, competitions, awards, art and creativity, an inspiring guest speaker or incursion. The more celebration you do of the big and the small, the more people you’ll get ‘on board’… plus celebration is good for the soul.
