ResourceSmart Schools Progress Workshop for Northern metro schools

Wednesday 12 May 2021
9:30am – 3:00pm
Online via Zoom

Schools and centres working with CERES are invited to join us to spend a productive day of facilitated support on ResourceSmart Schools!

The workshop is designed to support Sustainability Coordinators and other teachers/educators and staff involved in Sustainability from schools working through the program. CERES facilitators will be there to help you make progress on the modules and Stars you are working on.

This online workshop is an excellent opportunity to network with other schools and centres as we bring together teachers/educators and staff from the Northern, Eastern and Southern regions. Hear about sustainability projects from a school in each region, have plenty of time to make progress in ResourceSmart Schools, join session workshops on different sustainability topics, and also have access to offline activities to allow you to work at your own pace.

You can join us for all or part of the day as it suits your availability.

Our online Progress Workshop is not limited in number, so please share this with other staff and/or parents working on sustainability in your school/centre.

Registrations close 5pm on Friday, 7 May 2021.
