Sustainability

Sustainability in the curriculum

Sustainability education is integrated across our curriculum, as one of the 3 cross-curriculum priorities. Our students have an active role in making decisions and taking actions that contribute to creating a sustainable society and ecosystem.

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.
