Peninsula Teachers Environment Network
Driven by teachers and specific to your interest and needs, the Peninsula Teachers Environment Network (TEN) is open to all teachers from schools within the Shire. Co-ordinated by the Mornington Peninsula Shire, the Peninsula TEN provides free networking and information sharing opportunities. Topics are determined by TEN members, therefore information is both relevant and useful.
Meetings are held once a term from 4 pm.
Venues vary. Meetings are hosted by schools or are held at locations of interest.
For more information, or to join the next TEN meeting, contact the Waste and Litter Education Officer on 5950 1634
Schools can also book educational incursions and excursions to the Eco Living Display Centre. Interactive activities are linked to school curriculum and target specific learning levels. Further information, bookings and enquiries can be found on the Eco Living Display Centre Schools Program website.
