River Nile School
Sustainability across VCAL Curriculum
Finalist in the 2019 Premier's Sustainability Awards – Education category
The River Nile School in North Melbourne offers programs delivering the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) curriculum to re-engage refugee and asylum seeker school-aged young women aged 15–22 who may have experienced disrupted schooling, are newly arrived to Australia, or find a flexible learning environment most suitable.
The topic of sustainability was a key theme throughout the year. Students learnt about the topic in depth, culminating in two student-led projects: a Sustainability Expo and a Sustainability Market.
