Sustainable Schools

The Sustainable Schools Program is co-ordinated by The Gould League and CERES Environmental Park in Victoria with links to other Australian states and territories. The program provides a holistic approach so that schools do not see each area in isolation, but as a bigger picture of sustainability.


The Program deals with four areas relating to sustainability; waste and litter, energy use, water use and biodiversity in the school. In 2005, Burwood East Primary School looked at sustainability education, linking key aspects of integrated units of work at each level.
