The vision of Brewongle Environmental Education Centre is to connect every learner to the natural world and inspire change for a sustainable future. Our Centre embraces themes of environment, sustainability and Indigenous values among many others. We are a school run by the NSW Department of Education and provide curriculum based day and camp programs for all schools and students from K-12.
We are part of the wider Environmental and Zoo Education Centre (EZEC) Network that lead environmental education in NSW to empower learners for a sustainable future.
Brewongle is a Darug Aboriginal word that we think is derived from the local Boorooberongal clan of the Darug people who cared for this land of mighty rivers, lagoons, giant blue gums, forests and verdant plains. A rich country with the rugged Blue Mountains to the west, Cumberland Plain to the South and endless sandstone ridges and rainforest gullys to the north. A land of kangaroo, possum and koala, of eels, ducks and fish, of goanna, sea eagles and black cockatoos. We acknowledge and pay tribute to the giants of sustainability, The Darug people.
Brewongle EEC is committed achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and is leading the EZEC network to work towards delivering these goals in our unique education setting.
