In September students and staff from across the school got together with Natasha Mills our regional facilitator to undertake a Waste Audit. Once the bins were emptied students set to work sorting the waste into paper/cardboard, plastic, soft plastic, glass, metal, organic and non recyclable materials. We all had a lot of fun and also learnt a great deal about how to better manage our waste. A very big thank you to Natasha!
Our Say – Sustainable Schools: In the Beginning
By CERES Education – Outreach Team | July 11, 2013
With a small grant from Nillumbik Council in 1999-2001, CERES let the first fish into the stream under the name Sustainable Schools. Now many schools of fish swim across Victoria. Naturally, this emergence came out of many great environment programs on waste, water etc. Quickly teaming up with Gould League, we soon attracted government and philanthropic support so that we grow into AuSSI Vic and then ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic schools. What a fabulous journey with so many organisations. This is the ‘real growth’ we need in society to keep the faith! Forwards! This article is a timeline summary and a potted history.
