          Birds in Schools

          What is Birds in Schools?

          1. Birds in Schools is an environmental education project designed and delivered by BirdLife Australia’s Urban Bird Program with support from funding bodies, local BirdLife Australia branch volunteers and local councils.
          2. Birds in Schools consists of one teacher professional development module and a series of inquiry-based Stage 3 curriculum modules for students in years 5 and 6.
          3. Birds in Schools is delivered by BirdLife staff, volunteers and classroom teachers through teacher professional development and ongoing BirdLife support for teachers alongside BirdLife volunteer incursions to local schools, including planting days

          Our Birds in School program aims to engage students in the scientific process through investigating and monitoring the birds and habitat of their school grounds with the ultimate aim of developing and implementing an action plan related to improving its biodiversity

          This program offers multiple benefits for students and teachers:

          • The chance to become citizen scientists and actively participate in the scientific process
          • Development of a valuable connection with the natural world
          • A supported cross-curriculum teaching resource that builds knowledge and skills across key learning areas and clearly links with syllabuses
          • Opportunity to investigate real-life issues, reflect and problem solve and develop action-oriented responses to sustainability challenges
          • A way to prioritise biodiversity within the School Environmental Management Plan (SEMP) and, where funding is available, the ability to fund part of the implementation of those plans by creating habitat for birds on the school site
          • Collaboration and partnerships with the local school community and local council

          Our Birds in Schools program also relies on a group of brilliant and dedicated volunteers who help to deliver this program and encourage sustainability and a foster a love for nature in the younger generation. All your hard work makes it possible for us to implement such a wonderful program and receive the incredible feedback that we do from our schools.

          You can find more information on our different pacakages and what our program can ofers on our Birds in Backyards website here or, alternatively you can email our Urban Bird Project Manager Holly Parsons at holly.parsons@www.bianchun.tw

          Past Schools


          With the support of the Penrith Lakes Development Corporation, Birds in Schools is worked with 10 primary schools in the Penrith LGA  in 2019. 

          Northern Queensland

          With funding from an Engaging Queensland grant, Birds in Schools worked alongside BirdLife Mackay, BirdLife Townsville, BirdLife North Queensland and BirdLife Capricornia in Northern Queensland. Students created a series of inspiring Action Plans and, in 2019, worked hard to create safe places for birds on their school grounds by implementing those plans.

          Free Resource

          The Pardalote package is a free resource available for teachers and students over one or two terms. This package consists of an Australian curriculum teaching resource (with accompanying worksheets) that builds knowledge and skills across science, maths and english and gets students outdoors and connecting with nature. 

          You can download your free package here.

          Student Art and Poetry Competition 2019

          Congratulations to the winners of the first Birds in Schools Student Art and Poetry competition that was held at the end of 2019! Students were able to enter an artwork or a poem focused on Australian Birds with the rest being open to their own interpretation. We had some fantastic entries from our Melbourne and North Queensland schools which made it incredibly hard to choose the pieces we loved the most! Here are our winners from the art and poetry categories. Students won a beautiful Kookaburra card game from the very talented Bridget Farmer, a BirdLife tote bag and a bird pin.
