Enviroweek Program

Enviroweek Participation

EnviroweekCoburg North Primary School is proud to announce our participation in Enviroweek. Enviroweek celebrates positive everyday choices to build a more sustainable future. This year, CNPS is partaking in the ‘Wild Child’ challenge that encourages all students and teachers to connect with the outdoors.

Students will be participating in outdoor activities that enable them to engage and connect with the natural environment. Activities may include gardening, nature trails, scavenger hunts and outdoor games.

Why is this important?

  • Being outdoors allows children to connect with the world around them.
  • Through outdoor experiences, health and emotional well-being is improved.
  • Classroom learning is improved through outdoor connection (real life application).
  • Nature calms and re- energises you. Taking in the natural world around us can do wonders for the mind, body and spirit!

Enviroweek Wild ChildEnviroweek will take place from Monday August 25th to Friday August 29th. During this week, all grades will be given a list of suggested outdoor activities. It is the teacher’s discretion as to which activity their grade participates in.

We look forward to taking on the challenge and getting out into nature. We’ll kick things off with an enviroweek assembly guest speaker – Lucy Best from The Moreland Energy Foundation/Positive Charge (and mum of Jude and Liam!)
