School Excursions and Incursions

Excursions, incursions and more...

for your class at the Randwick Sustainability Hub

Incursions

Randwick City Council can come to your Randwick school to deliver an incursion once per term on a wide variety of topics.

We can also work with your teachers on establishing a teaching garden and/or to set up and run student-led audits on energy, water and food that is linked to the curriculum. All schools can now use the ClimateClever app for free, which will help make a project based learning program more visual and fun. These audits often generate many ideas and projects and we may support these through our Sustainable Schools Grants.

Excursions

We also offer excursions at the Randwick Sustainability Hub utilising the many facilities specifically set up for demonstration purposes including gardens, native habitat, building design, renewable energy and more.
