Programs and Curriculum Support

Environmental programs and curriculum support

Frankston City Council offers a range of programs and support for local schools and their communities in their journey to become more environmentally sustainable.

Limited funding support offered to schools in past years has included:

  • Biodiversity: Wildlife education talks and activities for primary students
  • Environmental Leadership workshops for secondary and primary school students
  • Professional Development for teachers in Environmental Sustainability, available to secondary, primary and preschool educators
  • Youth Environmental Summit for secondary student environmental teams
  • ResourceSmart Schools – support for work in areas of Energy, Waste, Water, Biodiversity and Core

Details of options available to schools are sent to schools in November each year, with Expression of Interest forms due by early December for activities to be delivered in Term 1 or 2 the following year. These activities are delivered at no or little cost to the schools. For details, contact the Environmental Education Officer on or call 1300 322 322.

Teachers Environmental Network (TEN)

This network supports local schools and teachers with environmental education resources, information and networking opportunities. 

Facilitated by Council, the popular network is open to all Primary and Secondary schools in the Frankston City municipality. Meetings are held once each term after school on a Thursday at various locations. Teachers from other municipalities can contact the Environmental Education Officer to discuss attendance, by invitation.

For more information about the network and to be placed on the contact list for upcoming meetings, email the Environmental Education Officer on or call 1300 322 322.

Schools Tree Day

Council proudly supports local schools and preschools with indigenous plant donations for their grounds on National Schools Tree Day each July. 

Planet Ark has run this nationwide program for over a decade. Council has donated tens of thousands of trees, shrubs and grasses for planting in schools around our municipality.  Over recent years, nearly 4000 trees, shrubs and grasses have been planted in Frankston City on Schools Tree Day, helping to beautify our local environment, provide habitat for wildlife and combat climate change.

Watch this space in Term 2 each year to see details of how to apply for your school’s free plants donated by Council for Schools Tree Day.
