Our school involves students, teachers, parents and community members in actions that make a positive difference in our local community and our world.

Students are involved in leadership through:

  • Grade 6 leadership program - Sustainability Leaders
  • Grade 4 - 6 students involved in standalone sustainability community projects
  • All students have the opportunity to be a compost, energy or recycling monitor in their class.

Parent volunteers are part of the Environment Sub-committee and work on projects in Energy, Waste, Biodiversity, Water and events. Parents are always welcome to join us. If you have expertise in any area and are keen to be involved, please contact us.
