Projects above that are benefits to the school over and above their environmental responsibility like reducing waste going to landfill and reducing our carbon emissions are

  • aluminium can and newspaper recycling which provide funds to the school that are allocated to the Kitchen Garden program run by Mrs Dwyer
  • Beauty product and oral care packaging and Nespresso pod recycling that see the school gain points which are redeemable for a $0.01 per point cash payment to the school, organisation of our choice, product bundles, collection materials and charitable gifts.

The projects below are whole school projects initiated by Mrs Dwyer in conjunction with staff to reduce waste and carbon emissions.

Parents/Care givers please set up containers at home for as many of the above items as you can and send them to school as this will also reduce your waste and carbon emissions.

Teachers can you also consider setting up containers for various items so children can see them as this will help them remember items we require.
