​Canterbury Bankstown Teachers Network 

The teachers network provides a platform for educators within all sectors to come together to share ideas, knowledge and resources. 

The network will primarily focus on collaboration and support for people with an interest in environmental education and is open to representatives from both primary and secondary, government and non-government schools as well as other interested environmental educators. 

Meetings are held in week 6 of each term from 4:00-5:30pm

Resources for Child Care Centres and Schools

We have put together a list of resources to help child care centres and schools with planning and delivering environment and sustainability education activities. For more information, visit the links below:
