We facilitate the Blacktown City Sustainable Schools Network. This group is open to all primary and secondary school teachers working at schools in Blacktown City, and interested parents and community members who want to get more involved in supporting environmental initiatives at their child's school.

The network provides face-to-face and online networking opportunities, access to classroom resources, case studies of best-practice education for sustainability initiatives for schools, invitations to local events and partnership opportunities. The network meets once each term, and there is a quarterly Sustainable Schools Network e-newsletter to keep you informed of opportunities and resources available for schools.
