Our Schools Inclusion Program is innovative and highly relevant in today’s outreach for disability inclusion. The program is growing fast, generating excitement across primary and secondary schools alike.
Working together with the students, Bushlink teams use their specialist environmental skills to transform specific areas of a school’s grounds or an external site. This can include weeding, pruning, clearing, mulching and planting in bushland, kitchen gardens or school gardens. If required, we can also develop a professional ongoing ‘Site Action Plan’.
On-ground activities support the Department of Education’s Environmental Education Policy and Sustainability Curriculum Framework (For more information, please contact us).
Our professional and devoted supervisors are qualified in conservation, land management and disability support. Their goal is to support our employees with disability and ensure your students get the most out of the experience.

Everyone looks forward to seeing the Bushlink team – it’s such a worthwhile school initiative, promoting tolerance, acceptance and understanding. The P&C was very pleased to be able to jointly fund this amazing program.
Deputy Principal, Manly West Public School
Our partnership with Bushlink is highly valued and supported by the P&C. Students love working outdoors with the Bushlink team to improve our school grounds. The program promotes a mutual respect and understanding of others. We regard the Bushlink team as part of our school community.
Principal, NBSC Manly Selective Campus
Bushlink is actively involved in a regeneration program on the school site, which has transformed part of the school’s grounds from an overgrown waste to an area of bushland that enhances the environment of both the school and the local area.
Principal, Manly Vale Public School
Thank you so much for all the work achieved in such a short time. The classes participating loved the experience and the bush tracks look great!
