Environmental Centre

Eumundi State School is fortunate to have its own Environmental Centre, situated at the bottom of the school to enable the outside gardens, chook pens and worm farms to be used as an integrated outside classroom.  Mr Jon Gemmell, our passionate Science teacher, who also has Permaculture Design Certificate, is a keen gardener and integrates permaculture principles into the curriculum delivery.
Jon and the P-6 classroom teachers are able to use the facilities in the Enviro Centre as well as each class having a whole day to learn all things Environment!  Parents are invited to join in on the rotation lessons and help out on working bees.  On these days the students utilise the garden, kitchen, chicken coop and worm farm.  This is all leading towards a STEAM/STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Maths) program for the school.
