It has developed a strong foundation and established a holistic approach to environmental education and Education for Sustainability. The school’s focus combines learning and management of environmental resources as a way of becoming a more sustainable community. We are a member of an international Eco School Network and AuSSI schools throughout Australia and the world.
Sustainability is a cross curriculum perspective within the Australian Curriculum. Consideration is given to this important area when planning units of inquiry at all year levels.
Students have the opportunity to be involved in a gardening club run at lunch times throughout the year. They:
- Plant and cultivate the vegetable gardens
- Grow and sell (for a small donation) of seasonal herbs
- Look after plants and garden beds throughout the school
