National Recycling Week – Ollie and the Spectral Spectacles – [email protected] – Upper Primary

Meet Ollie. He’s a genius inventor. Or at least, he wants to be. That’s if his inventions actually worked. Instead of getting him into trouble. But one day, everything changes when he discovers a pair of glasses that allow him to see the power of unwanted items and transform them into incredible inventions – that work.

This hilarious book from well known Australian entertainer Jimmy Rees (Jimmy Giggle on Giggle and Hoot) is all about creative thinking and caring for the environment.

In this lesson, you’ll become an inventor just like Ollie, designing your own inventions using old, unused and unwanted items from around your house, while thinking about how much we send to landfill that could be reused or repurposed using forums such as Gumtree.

Students will have the opportunity to deep dive into the concepts of workplace diversity and sexism and harassment in the workplace. The lessons in this unit encourage students to take a proactive approach to creating a better world, both in and outside of work. 

Jump Rope for Heart can help primary schools meet the mandatory weekly requirements for student participation in sport and physical activity. It also encourages students to build a positive attitude towards exercise, healthy eating and heart health.

Cool Australia is proud to announce its collaboration with one of Australia’s most loved and honoured landscape artists Joshua Yeldham. Joshua Yeldham is an award-winning Australian artist that has held collections and exhibited all around the world. His spiritual connection with land and nature is ever so clear in his detailed artworks and how he interacts with his environment to create and build on his art.

This shows students how social innovation can benefit even the most developed areas. The lessons guide students through the process of finding and understanding a problem, designing a solution for this problem, thinking about the opportunities and challenges associated with their solution.
