Come along to an evening of inspiring education with the Sustainable Schools Seminar this Tuesday 13 May at 6:30pm. Hosted by Main Arm Upper Primary School, Principal Virginia Pavlovich will present some of the sustainability education programs taking place at the school, exemplifying what is possible at a small local public school in the area.

Where? Byron Shire Council Chambers, Station St, Mullumbimby

Donna Grey and Eric Bollen will also be presenting the vision for starting a K-12 Green School in the Northern Rivers, one that is modelled largely on the Green School in Bali - www.greenschool.org. Eric has toured the Green School in Bali and will give a brief description of the history of the school, its unique architecture and setting and the progressive environmental and educational curriculum that informs the direction of the school.

Lastly, Ian Hamilton, Director of Kookaburra Kulture Wilderness School, will convey the value and importance of Nature Connection in our current high tech culture and showcase how Kookaburra Kulture Wilderness School offers outdoor nature connection classes for children.

Light supper will be available by Main Arm Upper Primary School by donation.
