What is offered to schools:

CERES facilitators or the Northern Region Coordinator can contact Rebecca Petit to get a GIS satellite map of the school grounds for use in a biodiversity audit.

We work more generally with schools – ie. by giving advice and support eg. information, resources or giving the odd talk here and there. We have some resources available online at www.darebin.vic.gov.au/environment.

We have recently produced the schools and ESL resources called ‘A great place to live’ and ‘Our sustainable home’ in partnership with VAEE, which can be found at our ‘Sustainable Living’ page under ‘Environmental Resources for Schools’ – http://www.darebin.vic.gov.au/Darebin-Living/Caring-for-the-environment/SustainableLiving
