School Activity Kits

This project has come about after considerable consultation with the teachers in the NetWaste region about the type of waste related resources that would be of benefit. Surprise, surprise. Teachers informed us they wanted hands on activities that they could do with their students. In response to this NetWaste has developed a series of 7 activity based workshops and resources. This is an example of what can be found in our ‘Rubbish on the Run’ kit.

Activity based workshops and resources:

  • Worm Power
  • Caught on Composting
  • No Waste Lunch
  • Smart Shopping
  • Be a Super Hero and Recycle
  • Rubbish on the Run
  • Stuck on Stuff

All resources can provide links with the Cross Curriculum subjects of Sustainability, Critical and Creative Thinking, Ethical Understanding, Literacy and Numeracy, Personal and Social Capability and Civics and Citizenship. Curriculum Links can be downloaded here

If you would like further information or are interested in receiving one or more of the kits please contact NetWastes Environmental Learning Adviser Sue Clarke on 0400 336 580 | Email:
