Kids Teaching Kids Conference

Nillumbik Shire Council

Students took over the classroom at Edendale Community Environment Farm today as part of the Kids Teaching Kids Conference.

It was the tenth year Nillumbik Shire Council and Banyule City Council, together with Eltham North Primary School, hosted the conference at the much-loved Eltham community farm.

More than 120 students from 12 schools in Nillumbik and Banyule shared their sustainability knowledge as part of the environmental education program.

They joined thousands of students around Australia who held key events to celebrate Kids Teaching Kids Week.

This year’s theme for the conference at Edendale Farm was the War on Waste.

Students gave presentations about the work they are doing in their schools to combat waste and took part in several activities.

Mayor Karen Egan spoke at the event along with Kids Teaching Kids founder Arron Wood.
