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 recently has included the following programs and sessions:
- 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 - modules in Energy, Waste, Water, Biodiversity and Core
Details are sent to schools in November each year requesting Expressions of Interest in the programs and activities offered for the following school year. These are delivered at no cost to the schools, in Terms 1 and 2.
