Enviroschools in Northland

A student recycling at St Francis.Imagine…communities thriving by revitalising the ecosystems they are a part of – producing healthy water, clean energy, rich biodiversity, nurturing buildings and healthy food…schools and community are one, with young people gaining skills, knowledge and experiences to design and create their schools, neighbourhoods and country.  This is a vision that is already becoming a reality for over a third of Northland schools and kura through involvement in the Enviroschools Programme.

The kaupapa of the Enviroschools Programme is about the well-being of the whole school, community and eco-system.  It’s about working out how to live so that our society and economy nourish the natural systems that give us life.  Enviroschools gives young people an opportunity to explore real life challenges and to apply their abundance of energy and ideas. Students, schools and kindergartens that are working towards sustainability play a significant role in creating sustainable communities by:

  • being role models of sustainable practices
  • enabling students to be teachers amongst their families and peers
  • creating future leaders who understand how to make informed decisions and take action. 

The Enviroschools Programme in Northland

The North’s Enviroschools Programme is funded by and operated through the Northland Regional Council, with support from The Toimata Foundation.

In Northland, over 90 schools and five kindergartens are currently on the pathway towards creating sustainable communities.  They are all working at their own pace to achieve a range of sustainability actions. Along the way, some Enviroschools choose to reflect at the Bronze, Silver and Green-Gold stages of experience, understanding and practice.

The following schools and kindergartens receive support through facilitation, resources, events, professional development and a nationwide network of schools.
