Nature, art and the classroom: SE Sustainable Schools Network Meeting

Join like-minded educators and hear about the inaugural Armadale Arts Bush Trail and how you and your students can be involved.

This inspiring project will see around ten ephemeral artworks created from the natural materials of Settlers Common East. The artworks will weave a bush trail of artistic delights to be enjoyed by school groups and the whole community across the two weeks of the Armadale Arts Festival (6 – 19 May).

This meeting is an opportunity to get hands on with nature art, be guided in crafting something special through your schools that will be integrated into the major artwork of the trail designed by land artist Elaine Clocherty and local Elder Vivienne Hansen.

Afternoon tea is provided.

You will also join a guided tour of Piara Waters Primary School to see how they are achieving great sustainability outcomes.

This meeting is a chance for local primary and high school teachers, as well as early childhood educators, to share ideas about the ways they run their classrooms and services sustainably and how they teach children to care for the environment and people. These meetings occur once per term and we will invite speakers to address sustainability topics that are of most interest to meeting participants.
