Schools are the heart of our communities. A litter-free, healthy, eco-friendly school is a real asset to a community – both in the physical environment of a local area and in giving young people knowledge, skills and positive attitudes towards the environment.

What is Eco-Schools?

Eco Schools is a worldwide initiative of the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), and aims to empower students to be the change our sustainable world needs by engaging them in fun, action-orientated learning.

Did you know? Eco-Schools is FREE to join?

That’s right! There is absolutely no cost for a school in the Northern Territory to take part in the Eco- School program!
The reason for that is that Wrigley is the sole sponsor of the  Eco-School Program in the NT!
They fund all associated School activities and cover the cost of schools to join of $100/year.
So join us in saying a big THANK YOU to Wrigley!
