Enviroschools Bronze, Silver & Green-Gold Reflections
Sharing and decision-making sessions and the accompanying celebrations take place throughout the year
The reflections process celebrates each Enviroschool's unique, student-led achievements towards a more healthy, peaceful and sustainable community. It sets a framework of stages – from Bronze, to Silver, through to Green-Gold – reflecting steps on the school's journey. It's also a way to inspire and engage the wider community.
See www.nrc.govt.nz/reflections for more information.
Contact your Enviroschools facilitator to book in for an Enviroschools reflection.
