Turn recycling into valuable classroom learning that will last a lifetime!

This year we have again partnered with the award winning Cool Australia to promote a series of engaging recycling lessons. Teachers can download free lesson plans, digital worksheets and a host of other resources to teach lessons that will last a lifetime.

These resources are aligned with the Australian Curriculum and address the cross curricula priorities of ‘sustainability' and ‘Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islands culture and history'. They include a collection of new digital learning resources for primary and high school education, as well as a new Early Learning section, where students learn by having fun.
