ResourceSmart Schools Program in Gippsland

Imagine a program for schools that not only fulfills curriculum, environmental and social outcomes for the whole school community but is free and will save your school money for years to come!

Become part of a community of schools taking action to:

  • minimise waste
  • save energy and water
  • promote biodiversity
  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

ResourceSmart Schools is an award-winning Victorian Government program that provides practical support to reduce resource use and make cost savings, integrate sustainability education into the curriculum and share learnings beyond the school gate.

ResourceSmart Schools will:

  • help you to undertake audits in whichever focus area your school wants to make changes or generate savings
  • work with you to create and deliver your school’s plan for a more sustainable and economically manageable future
  • provide you with connections to other ResourceSmart Schools who will share with you their innovations and successes and their financial and curriculum gains.

Working With Your School

Key to the success and effectiveness of ResourceSmart Schools is that local sustainability facilitators work at your school with teachers and students.

Facilitators work with primary and secondary schools and school camps to help develop fun and engaging hands-on sustainability programs that produce real cost-saving benefits.

They provide practical support and expertise to help you develop a range of activities and resources to help students understand the fundamentals of sustainable living and lead the way on relevant, practical projects.

Becoming ResourceSmart

It’s easy.
