Connector Bugs

Connector Bugs is a hands-on environmental and social group that supports the Sustainable Schools program at Footscray West.   Parents, toddlers, pre-schoolers, extended family, and community members are all warmly welcome.


Connector Bugs run open gardening sessions in the school grounds every Friday meeting in the Orchard (behind the Library). You don’t need to know anything about sustainability or have a ‘green thumb’ to join in.   Just turn up, enjoy the company, the fresh air, and have some fun while making a difference to the local environment.


Please contact the office if you would like any other information.


As well as helping the students in the vegie gardens and orchard areas, Connector Bugs also support many activities and special projects, including:

  • Water saving initiatives
  • Classroom activities 
  • Annual sun flower plantings with the Preps
  • The Habitat Haven – an outdoor learning area and sustainable garden along Argyle St
  • Classroom composting
  • Environmental awards
  • Recycling initiatives working with the students of the Environmental team

Keep an eye on the Newsletter and Calendar for the latest Connector Bug activities.
