We teach children about their responsibilities in creating a sustainable future, and we put this into practice by reducing waste, minimising consumption and protecting and conserving wildlife and natural habitats.
Sustainability is a large part of a child's day and curriculum, and we work closely with our children and families to develop a sense of responsibility and care for our environment.
We look at many ways to reduce our impact on the environment, including:
- Reducing our consumption by being water-wise and limiting single-use plastics.
- Reducing waste in general.
- Recycling paper and plastic
- Compost Bin/green bin for foods - children and educators scrape bowls after mealtimes.
- Reducing electricity consumption. Turning off lights and heating and cooling when not required.
- Our play spaces are designed where possible with natural and recycled materials.
We aim to have a sustainable future by:
- Educating our children about the environment around them and the importance of sustainability.
- Informing our educators and families about being more sustainable in their own environments.
- Looking at ways for our families to participate and assist in positive environmental projects. Projects so far include “Great Book Swap” for the indigenous literacy program, collecting bread tags for “Bread tags for wheelchairs” and collecting bottle lids to help “Lids 4 kids” create prosthetic arms for children.
