School Curriculum Resources

Solar panel activityCurriculum is one of the five focus areas of the Actsmart Schools Program. The program supports schools to adopt sustainable practices into the management of waste, water, energy and school grounds/biodiversity. Introducing new sustainable practices provides a stimulus to introduce new teaching and learning programs.

Sustainability is one of three cross curriculum priorities in the Australian Curriculum. There are three key concepts to the sustainability priority: systems, world views and futures with nine organising ideas to support the delivery of these concepts.

Actsmart Schools offers free services and resources, for example a Curriculum Best Practice Guide with step-by-step instructions and recommendations to help schools integrate sustainability across all learning areas of the Australian Curriculum. Schools can be rewarded for their efforts by gaining Actsmart Schools accreditation for the effective delivery of sustainability education through the curriculum.
