Enviro-Stories

Since 2009, Central Tablelands and Central West Local Land Services have been a proud supporter of the Enviro-Stories Education Program, publishing 35 books written by students about our region. Created by PeeKdesigns, Enviro-Stories has provided an educational experience in the Local Land Service regions for the purpose of creating school readers that have been written about local issues, by local kids, for local kids.

Over the years, many of our local students have had the opportunity to participate in this program. Students have learnt about their local environment and connected with their cultural heritage. They have written and illustrated a wide range of stories, both fictional and non-fictional, about their experiences and incorporating what they have learnt into their stories. This have been a great achievement for the students and the schools involved and we thank them all for being a part of this program.

Teacher Resource Kits

The following resource kits have been developed for use in the classroom. Each kit consists of information sheets, teacher’s notes and activity sheets that can be used in the classroom. Syllabus links have been provided for each activity. Both NSW and Australian Curriculum links have been referenced throughout the kit. Answers have been provided at the end of the kits for some of the activities.
