Central Otago Cluster Meeting - The First One!

On Tuesday afternoon we held the first of the Central Otago Education for Sustainability cluster meetings. We invited teachers who have already been to one of our introduction to EfS workshops to come along and participate in a workshop specifically geared around zero waste in school.

The turn out was fantastic, so thank you to everyone who came. The discussions were awesome and there were lots of examples of work that the different schools had been involved in as they are reducing their waste. This opportunity to share your work with other schools is so valuable. Even if you think you've covered the topic we discus in the cluster meetings you can still play a very important role in supporting and inspiring other schools on their EfS journey.

Keep an eye on your inbox for details of the next workshop, and if anyone has one of Tania's Enviroschools scrapbooks can you please let her know. These scrapbooks are so useful for the work she does and there is no way of getting any more.

A great avenue to keep us all up to date about what is going on around our district and with other schools.. Tuesday's workshop in Cromwell was an excellent afternoon. I think the talk during afternoon tea was just as valuable. Sharing ideas throughout the region and between schools encourages and motivates us all. Thanks for all your input and enthusiasm as well.
