Supporting eco projects in schools and colleges Our Teachers Environment Fund was launched in March 2008 to assist schools and TAFEs/CIT to enhance their sustainability. We offer grants of up to $2,000 bi-annually to help with environmental projects. Since the program launched we’ve provided grants of $400,000 to 157 schools with a total of 8,150 teachers and 95,771 students. "We believe teaching sustainability is as important as practising it. The more our next generation know how to look after the world now, the more we can all look forward to later. Through this programme, we are helping teachers bring their sustainability projects to life." “It’s a great way to get your students out of the classroom while keeping them totally engaged", said Teachers Mutual Bank CEO Steve James.
