Get Involved With Cool Australia
What can you do?
There are many ways to support the work of Cool Australia. As a not for profit we are constantly looking for ways to do more with less. You could be that way.
Send a letter to your local school principal
The key to encouraging a whole school approach to sustainability and spreading the Cool Australia word is through the school principals. We have drafted a letter that you can use to contact your local principal.
Fundraising Event Assistants
Cool Australia receives no government funding and relies on the generous support of our coolest partner, Bendigo Bank and other philanthropic friends.
A key part of our fundraising takes place at two events that we hold in Melbourne and Sydney in October and November.
If you are Melbourne or Sydney based and have half a day to spare to assist at these events, or you are keen to help us in the lead up to these events, please contact us at [email protected]
Proof Reading Extraordinaire
Our core business is creating best practice curriculum resources for all Australian teachers. Ensuring our materials are without error is of extreme importance to us.
Proof reading is a skill that we value and desperately need.
If you have an eye for detail, an interest in improving the educational outcomes of Australian students and some spare time, we would love to hear from you.
Proof reading can be done anywhere and anytime.
Please contact us at [email protected]
Schools Engagement Advocate
As a National online organisation our greatest strength – our reach – is also our greatest challenge. Getting out to all Australian schools in person is unfortunately not possible.
Our aim is to encourage all Australian teachers to sign up to Cool Australia and use our resources. Experience has shown us that once teachers know what we do and how we do it, they very quickly become regular users.
A schools engagement advocate can be based anywhere in Australia. They would firstly spend a bit of time getting to know Cool Australia, both our work and our culture. This would be facilitated via skype, email, and telephone and through a Schools Engagement kit.

By making a donation to Cool Australia you are helping us to educate thousands of young people across Australia.
