GREEN CURRICULUM- PRIMARY SCHOOL
Over the past few years Wulagi Primary School has employed a Sustainability Educator to provide support for teachers by enhancing their sustainability lessons. As a result several useful learning resources have been developed, specific to teaching sustainability in the top end. I have provided a few of them in PDF format below. If you would like more information please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Green Curriculum Tree – This tree was designed bearing the permaculture principal “design from patterns to details” in mind. With so many changes in staff, interests and even resource availability in primary schools I found it most useful to identify key ethics for different age groups to master. These ethics can be taught through any mediums and many different topics.
