Sustainability News - Dec '19

We had a very successful day at the Bunnings BBQ. The sun was shining and many people were hungry. After heading out three times to purchase extra supplies, we raised over $800! This money will go towards activities being run by the Sustainability Team, which includes the development of the food garden. Many thanks to the parents, students and staff who donated items or volunteered on the day. It was such a pleasure to be part of a great community event. Special mention to Anna Jardine, Claire Cooper, Kerri Schroder and Katherine Emary.

One of the goals of the Sustainability Captains to finish this year was to raise sustainability awareness. They have attended five Year 8 SELF classes and the joined class of Year 9 students during Week 9, with a lesson that focused on greenhouse gas emissions, water use and sustainable toilet paper. Many students were surprised to learn how much water they use every day and how much deforestation occurs to produce virgin toilet paper. We are hoping that they will try to be more resource smart as a result.

Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season.
