Conscious of our beautiful and unique location and environment, we recognise the value and importance of preserving our local habitat and its flora and fauna. We aim to protect our unique surrounding environment and teach our students the value of protecting the environment locally and globally. We offer our students the opportunity to be involved in sustainable and environmental programs and clubs to educate and introduce them to socially conscious behaviours.
Sustainability is a key priority and every year we work to meet our two primary goals: being carbon neutral and being single-use plastic free.
We operate across four primary groups: the Sustainable Futures Student Leadership Team, the Sustainable Futures Working Party, the Environment and Biodiversity Cub, and the Plastic Oceans Club. Our efforts have also been supported by the Bee Club and the Gardening Club.
Throughout each year we engage with and promote sustainable efforts focussed around event days. For example, World Bee Day, World Ocean Day, National Recycling Week, to name a few. Our groups, however, work year-round to make changes at our school towards more sustainable practices. This includes informing themselves further about the environment to discover new and improved ways to increase sustainability, and be equipped to inform others.
Together we work to develop young people and staff to become more conscious of their place in the world, and demonstrate how they can create change.
