All child-care, day care, family day care and primary schools in the Bathurst region are eligible to subscribe to Get Grubby, Australia’s leading online sustainability resource for kids from the makers of ABCKids series dirtgirlworld and Get Grubby TV.

Led by 50 videos not shown on TV, the program stars dirtgirl, scrapboy and Costa the Garden Gnome. The course is delivered online and is being provided FREE by Council. It includes videos, music, outdoor and indoor activities; and encourages kids to explore the big world outside. Many of the topics are timed to coincide with key sustainability events such as World Environment Day and National Recycling Week.

With an emphasis on fun, this ‘edutaining’ program is sure to be a hit with our centres and primary schools as they join thousands of kids around Australia to become confident planet-dwellers with the confidence to create worm farms, grow food, recycle, reduce plastic and waste, and be water and energy wise.

The introductory video is available to view here.
