Introductory sessions and webinars

This workshop provides an introduction to waste issues, school case studies and training on setting up a whole school approach to waste minimisation and education. 

We encourage more than one representative from each school to complete the professional learning together. Teachers, principals, registrars, cleaners, gardeners, canteen managers, parents/guardians, members of the P&C or any other school staff are welcome.

Workshops are held throughout the year in both metropolitan and regional areas. The webinars allow regional schools to access information when a workshop is not available in your area. These are free and a contribution toward teacher relief is provided, where possible, to facilitate participation. 

Waste Wise Networking

These are held at an existing Waste Wise school and include an opportunity to network , share successes, and solutions with other schools.  The workshop also includes a tour of the host school’s Waste Wise projects. 

Waste Wise topic workshops

These are run in both regional and metro areas. Topics include:

  • Worm farming
  • Composting
  • Litter
  • Waste Wise gardening
  • Whole-school sustainability programing.

Staff presentations

The Waste Wise Team can also conduct professional learning with your school staff. These fun and interactive sessions, held at your school, encourage a whole school approach to waste reduction, highlight waste links in the Australian curriculum and foster Education for Sustainability principles. The presentations can be tailored to your needs. Duration 30 minutes - 1.5 hours.
