Sustainable schools are designed to act as living laboratories to teach and embody eco-friendly initiatives that reduce our environmental impact.
From the compost used to feed our hungry chooks, to the plastic recycle program, to our solar panels – we try and run our school as effectively and sustainably as possible. We run a Kitchen Garden Program for our Foundation to Year 2 students. Our Year 3 and 4 students manage the Hilton Henhouse. They run this in a completely sustainable manner and also spend time learning about the life cycles of egg laying creatures.
Everyday strategies to maintain sustainability are:
Promoting a reduction in lunch waste
Using both sides of a sheet of paper
Print only what we must
Turn off the lights and heating when you’re the last one leaving a room.
Conduct a waste audit at regular intervals
