The Australian Organic Schools Program was first commissioned by Australian Organic Limited (AOL) in 2010. This November has seen the Program reimagined and relaunched.
Australian Organic Schools is an Australian Curriculum Assessment Reporting Authority (ACARA) aligned, complimentary program, designed to profile the Organic Industry within Australia.
The new program is comprised of three units. Within each unit are fully resourced, curriculum aligned worksheets, guided practical and experimental activities, teacher led discussions and link to a variety of interesting videos.
Falling under the ACARA Cross Curriculum Priority of Sustainability, this program has been carefully curated to increase awareness on how Organic Principles and Practices interact and impact on Environmental Systems. Students will become aware of ways they can contribute to more sustainable patterns of living all the while continuing to diversify their current world views.
These resources have been made available to teachers and educators for free, in an effort to bring organic into classrooms across the nation.
