Newpark School Success Story

Following their experience with Education for Sustainability, Newpark school in Blackrock became the first school in Ireland to become 100% single-use plastic free. They raised awareness, offered a solution, and got their community to join the effort.

This was a student-led campaign that was a result of our 8-week transition year module

14 students worked together to rid their school of single-use plastic

Students took action on an environmental topic that was important to them

Benefits for Students, Teachers and Principals

TY Students

Courses are topical and action-based. When students are working together on an issue they relate to and that matters to them, they’re always more engaged. And it’s astonishing when they begin to see their ideas develop into actions with measurable results.

For Teachers

New game-based methodologies - complete with resources, lesson plans, materials, and an interactive online learning platform ready-made for teachers and students. By training teachers to deliver the programme in an 8-week module, we’re helping to make sustainability a fundamental part of each school we work with.

Principals & Administrators

Nothing could be better for a school’s morale and reputation. An affordable and accessible programme that includes teacher training and action-led courses suited to TY learning objectives while promoting global citizenship.
