Creative Classrooms & Centres


Creative Classrooms & Centres is a community engagement project. We aim to build on Reverse Garbage Queensland's role as a hub for educators interested in sustainability, by offering a series of events and building a library of resources and a handbook on creative reuse.

To hear about upcoming events and new resources , sign up for Re-Use Ed, our newsletter for educators.

Creative Classrooms was launched on 7 May with a PD for early childhood educators. We were excited to welcome educators from different schools, centres and kindies. See the photo album from the event on facebook here.


Win a box of materials for your classroom or centre

Our educators' competition closed on 31 July 2016. We are excited to award a box of free Reverse Garbage Queensland materials* to Fiona Guthrie, Amanda Callaghan and Fiona Hjortshoj for their great ideas for incorporating creative re-use in an educational setting.

Queensland educators from kindies through to university level were encouraged to submit an idea to our Library of Creative Re-Use. The winners will provide a photo of the finished artwork for our new educators' handbook. We're now compiling submissions and examples from educators - watch this space for when we launch the new resources!

* A medium box of materials valued from $130 to $145 including materials, handling and postage (value depends on your postcode). The box can be chosen from one of our standard Mail Order themes or it can be a custom order.

Library of Creative Re-Use

Our goal is to build a free library of resources that inspires re-use in teaching and learning across many subject areas. It will be a repository for many of the creative ideas developed by us at Reverse Garbage Queensland over the years, but also, we hope it will receive contributions from the community.

Please consider sharing an example of creative reuse in your classroom to inspire others! Connect with us on social media by tagging us on facebook @reversegarbageqld, twitter @ReverseGarbageQ or instagram @reversegarbageqld and using the hashtag #CreativeClassrooms
