Eastern Suburbs Sustainable Schools Network

The Eastern Suburbs Sustainable Schools Network (ESSSN) welcomes teachers, early childhood educators and parents wanting to network and share ideas about school sustainability. The Network is coordinated between Waverley, Woollahra and Randwick Councils, who plan the meetings, organise guest speakers and workshop activities. The three Councils work in a variety of ways to support early learning centres and schools to implement real life sustainability learning.

If you want to be kept informed about upcoming meetings and other sustainable education initiatives sign up to our Sustainable Schools quarterly enews.
