Enviroschools events - 2019

Enviroschools Bronze, Silver & Green-Gold reflections

Sharing and decision-making sessions and celebrations take place throughout the year

Ruawai College - Bronze celebration.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.

Contact your Enviroschools facilitator to book in for an Enviroschools reflection.
