Costa and Sam

A familiar face made another appearance in Centennial Park yesterday…Gardening Australia host, patron for the Australian Association for Environmental Education, and Centennial Park lifelong devotee, Costa Georgiadis!

Previously Costa had posted about his childhood in the Park, and was back again to attend the Eastern Suburbs Sustainable Schools Network (ESSSN) meeting and hand out awards to the kids and teachers.

The ESSSN is a forum for teachers and parents associated with schools in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney to network and discuss new environmental sustainability initiatives and programs for more effective teaching and learning.

We were proud to host the ESSSN’s last meeting of the year at the Centennial Parklands Education Precinct and had a chance to run one of our popular Bush Schools programs.

Well done to all who attended, and we look forward to future opportunities to share our nature education expertise with the community in 2014.
