About our School

Gibberagong Environmental Education Centre (EEC) aims to inspire young people to experience and connect with the natural world and encourage the development of positive behaviour change. Our school vision is to:

"Inspire school communities to know, value and act for the environment."

Gibberagong Environmental Education Centre is a NSW Department of Education School (DoE) located at Bobbin Head within the picturesque Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.

All of our programs and school excursions are taught by NSW Department of Education teachers. Our teachers complete the DoE mandatory training each year including Child Protection and Code of Conduct updates. We also hold first-aid certificates and have completed specialist training in specific areas such as canoeing and snorkelling. Meet our staff here.

Our school team comprises of a Principal, school admininstation manager and primary and secondary teachers who are highly specialised in all key learning areas, in particularly science, geography and history as well the cross-curriculum priorities Sustainability and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures. Meet our staff here.

We teach in beautiful locations and our teachers have expert local knowledge. Our school works closely with the NSW National Parks Parks and Wildlife Service and NSW Aboriginal Education Consultative Group.

We lead primary and secondary school excursions, incursions and overnight programs within Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Muogamarra Nature Reserve and other locations across northern Sydney.

Overnight programs are offered at various sites, including dorm style accommodation at the Gibberagong Environmental Education Centre. Camping available at the magnificent Muogamarra Nature Reserve and The Basin locations. Contact our school for more information.

Gibberagong EEC leads authentic teacher professional development across a range of areas. Our programs are led by experienced staff, usually in an outdoor location.

We also lead the Hornsby/Ku-ring-gai Network for Environment and Sustainability Teachers (NEST). We meet once per term in a local school. You are welcome to join other liked-minded teachers to share inspiration and ideas.
