Dear Principal,

Like most parents, I am very concerned for the future of our communities and how this will affect my child and their children. It seems that most of us are under-educated when it comes to understanding that our natural world is our life support system.

If we are unable to protect and nurture our natural world then our economy, our jobs, our families and our way of life becomes unsustainable.

This leads me to the education of my child. I have recently become aware of the award winning teacher resource and digital library – Cool Australia. They are doing some great work around Australia helping teachers to get sustainability understandings into the Australian curriculum.

Cool Australia is a not for profit organisation that provides curriculum-linked resources for teachers and students. They have just re-launched their website. It is fantastic – really easy to use and packed with learning activities, units of work, videos, images, documentaries and other tools for teachers and students to work with.

Please find below some interesting links that support my experience:

I would like to talk with you you to discuss how we can get the Cool Australia resources into the school’s curriculum. Alternatively, please contact Cool Australia directly on 1300 853 810 or

Yours sincerely,
