Going green

As part of our school's focus on sustainability, all classes from Kindergarten to Year 6 have the opportunity to learn about the benefits of recycling and waste reduction. This coincides with the school being awarded a NSW Government Eco Schools Grant.  The grant has allowed our school to purchase yellow recycling bins for the school playground and classrooms.  Recycling is encouraged and incorporated into all aspects of our school.

School environmental management plans work across the key learning areas of the curriculum and the whole school community.

We start with local sustainability and over time develop student understanding of how their work contributes globally.

Students and staff manage, observe and monitor our school's resources, waste and physical surroundings, then take on activities to protect and improve our school and the local environment.

Your child will develop an understanding about:

  • the relationship between human activities and natural systems
  • sustainable management of the earth's resources
  • the inter-related nature of processes in the natural environment

We encourage you to support your child's 'going green' activities, and to help them to learn to care for the environment as part of their everyday lives.
