The Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority recognises the importance of working in partnerships to improve how waste is managed. As such, FRWA offers a wide variety of free presentations, workshops and information sessions to promote recycling and ethical waste management practices for residents, community groups and schools. The sessions are designed to be both engaging and informative. They are also adaptable to any age group.
Sessions can be tailored according to the age, stage and needs of the group.
Sessions are interactive, fun and flexible and can be tailored to suit the needs of your group. You are welcome to combine any of the above topics around your specific questions about waste. School presentations range from individual classes to whole school and curriculum support. The components can easily be curriculum linked upon request and additional teacher resources are available.
Sessions are normally 40-50 minutes but can be as short as 20-30 minute talk to a longer 2 hour workshop, depending on your needs.
To book an education session, please download the Booking Form and return it to FRWA. The Project and Education Officer will contact you shortly to confirm your booking. Alternatively, phone or email the FRWA Project and Education officer (for contact details go to Contact Us).
