Taking Care of Our Place
This incursion program focuses on HSIE, Science & Technology and Creative Arts to support the COGS framework for Early Stage 1 and Stage 1. The Our Place, and Local Places string will be supported with a hands on approach to caring for the environment.
The focus of this program is to develop a caring attitude towards the environment amongst students. The program emphasises ways that students can contribute to environmental quality at home and at school, by undertaking simple actions that reduce their impact on the environment in both the school and home.
The program will allow students to:
- investigate the school environment and develop knowledge and understanding about the natural and built environment
- gain an understanding of how their actions can help improve the environmental quality of their school
- create opportunities for themselves to demonstrate a caring attitude towards the environment
- investigate impacts of human activity on the natural environment.
Please note, this program is for Sydney Region schools only and all the activities will take place in your school.
