Our one-of-a-kind Sustainability Education Centre now resides in a wing of Le Page Primary in Cheltenham, Victoria. The centre’s popular themed rooms like ‘Wastelands’, ‘3R’s’ and ‘Incredible Shrinking Machine’ have been moved and improved, providing immersive learning environments, and purpose built minibeast gardens are perfect for observing urban biodiversity!

What to expect
Now residing in the front wing of Le Page Primary School, our Sustainability Centre has had a fresh makeover! When your school is visiting you will be the only school in our centre, which is not open to the General Public. We have space for you to lunch inside or outside before, during or after your program should you choose. Our engaging themed rooms include:
The Incredible Shrinking Machine: an amazing journey to the secret inside workings of a compost bin complemented by a sound and light show.
Wastelands: provides an interactive exploration through the world of natural resources, rubbish, littering and recycling.
3R’s Room: features a modern mini-mart, an ‘Olde Worlde’ shop, nude-food displays, recycling relay bins and more.
Worm Room: home to our working worm farms to sift through and explore!
Plus our Minibeast Microscope Pit and drama room!
Our outdoor spaces include a purpose built mini-beast garden and soon to be planted vegetable and herb gardens.
