Schools resource kit

Resources are available for school site leaders in fruit fly red outbreak areas – and teachers in any area – to use in the classroom, around the school and when communicating with parents and carers about fruit fly.

There are two parts to the resource kit:

  • School resources – for red outbreak area schools educating their school community about canteen fruit, green bins and restrictions
  • Teaching resources – for student learning purposes, including information on waste management programs with KESAB.

Waste management programs with KESAB

PIRSA has partnered with KESAB Environmental Solutions to include important fruit fly information in their range of educational programs on waste management. Some useful sessions include composting, cooking with food scraps, and bin audits. Contact KESAB to arrange a session for your school.
