The Department of Education has 25 Environmental and Zoo Education Centres located around NSW, of which, Red Hill EEC is one.
They provide various programs to visiting school groups depending on the unique features of their location. Programs offered are linked to NSW syllabus documents and stage groups. Pre- and post-excursion support materials are provided. The teachers from the Centres can also work in schools to support school-based environment programs.
The Centres support schools:
- by providing resources to help integrate environmental education across a variety of subject areas
- by providing professional learning opportunities to teachers
- implement more sustainable practices in schools
- by providing opportunities for student learning and environmental leadership.
More information about the network of Environmental and Zoo Education Centres can be found on the Curriculum support page for Sustainability or by following our Facebook page.
