Overview Project FLOW (For the Love of Water) engages elementary and secondary students in sustainability education through hands-on projects that model responsible and active citizenship. The experiential component prepares students to be stewards of our water resources and engages them in action that addresses local water issues and concerns. Through Project FLOW, Learning for a Sustainable Future (LSF) is working with teachers and students to provide the necessary tools to identify water issues that are important to them and provide ideas for action.
About Luke promotes building a sustainable, coordinated whole-school literacy program across all the K-6 years of primary school to support all students and prevent any from 'falling between the cracks'. Recognising that NSW teachers are keenly aware of the Four Literacy Resources model, he builds on these and recommends developing a common dialogue; audits of student data, community and staff resources; and following his process for whole-school planning so that it becomes a cross-sectional study. He also recommends intellectual engagement and deflecting focus from preparation for state-wide testing.
