Program Participation Agreement


What will you do to save the koala?

KOALA SMART has evolved as a SCHOOL participation project with the goal of educating, inspiring and driving change in the local community. It is supported by the NSW Koala Strategy and the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. Content available to teachers and students via It has been crafted to align with the curriculum and offer multiple avenues to explore in the course of addressing the driving question: What will you do to save the koala?

The ultimate purpose of the program is to deliver a practical concept which can be applied in the real world.

School Participation

Commitment: Schools will need to commit to participation in the project when registering on the website. This ensures students receive feedback and enables Koala Smart to identify possible real-world applications of their work.

Addressing the Question: Consider the threats facing koala populations and outline what could be done to address the problem if the resources were made available. The response may take the perspective of “Action” or “Advocacy” and be delivered via digital media, artistic/mixed media, or dramatic representation.

Optional: “Connecting with “Critical Friends”.
Once reaching Step 4: ‘Defining a Focus and Pathway’, consider requesting guidance from a skilled advisor. Submit a CONCEPT OUTLINE to connect with an appropriate expert or experienced volunteer.   Concept Outlines can be submitted via the Critical Friends Submission form available on

In order that feedback reaches your students before the school year ends, please send your submissions to Koala Smart by the end of the THIRD WEEK of TERM 4, this can be completed by filling out the Final Project Submissions form available on
