Message from SA Convenor
Firstly, thank you sincerely to the outgoing committee for their hard work to further Education for Sustainability in SA. During Debra's time as Convenor, we have seen enormous growth in Advocacy with the launch of Bringing Back the Butterflies, which has impacted thousands of people and continues today! To Debra & Jo - thank you for staying on board to share your expertise. To Andy, Kaarin and Liesl, your contribution is highly valued and you will be missed.
We'd like to introduce the new committee for 2021:-
Convenor & State Liason: Naomi Findlay

Public Officer: Jo Hendrikx
AAEE representative: Angela Colliver
HASS SA representative: David Larritt

I have some big shoes to fill as Convenor and am looking forward to getting to know you all. In my current role, I teach at Hewett Primary School where I am loving running Gardening Club. I moved to Adelaide in August 2019. Prior to this, I taught Primary Science and Physical Education in Central Outback schools in Alice Springs. My passion for the environment is in the areas of sustainable living (current study of a Diploma) and the circular economy.
Please send in stories of sustainability and any upcoming events from your site to be featured in this newsletter!
Yours in Sustainability,
Dr. Debra Bradley, Convenor (to Mar 2021) | AAEE-SA Chapter
& Naomi Findlay, New Convenor (2021-) | AAEE-SA Chapter
