At the HICES Educating For Sustainability Group it is our mission to be at the forefront in educating for ecological sustainability. 

The EfS Group builds & strengthens professional relationships through connection & collaboration and develops & delivers trail blazing programs that improve wellbeing & learning outcomes for our students. 

Together we strive to leverage our collective energy & resources for scalable outcomes across our schools & communities and to provide unique opportunities for our students that would not be possible in the context of one school alone.

We encourage representation across multiple faculties to enhance the depth of our collaborative learning and scope of outcomes. 

Our next meeting is on Tuesday 14 May 2024 via Zoom.
