What is the ESSSN?
The Eastern Suburbs Sustainable Schools Network (ESSSN) is a forum for teachers and parents associated with schools in the Eastern Suburbs to network and discuss new environmental sustainability initiatives and programs for more effective teaching and learning.
This network meets each term at a different school in the Eastern Suburbs to discuss current environmental projects, hear about upcoming events, workshops and resources, and to meet other teachers and parents who have a passion for sustainability education in our schools.
This site provides information about the meeting dates, locations, minutes and agendas but also provides a space to share case studies and resources for the benefit of other teachers.
You can also ask a question through our Q&A forum and have it answered by a champion at another local school.
