Highly Commended Sustainability Leadership Award
Congratulations to Aurore Severac who was presented with the Highly Commended Sustainability Leadership Award (Primary Staff) today at the Portrait Gallery’s ACTSMART Schools Sustainability awards 2021ceremony.
Aurore has led all Gardening and Sustainability programs and challenges in our school. She has organised groups to work in the garden on most lunchtimes, for monthly sustainability challenges and for collection of plastic bottle tops and recycling of bottles.
Our school now has collection tubs for plastic bottles and bottle lids outside each pair of classrooms. The monthly sustainability challenges have increased the whole school's awareness and these challenges, such as nude food lunch boxes, have continued after the challenge has finished. Our school garden produces vegetables, herbs and fruit that students care for, cook with at school and take home to share.
