Going green

Macarthur Sustainable Schools Expo

On Wednesday, 12th September, 8 students from Bardia PS attended the expo and learnt many new skills that they can bring back to the school. Skills such as:

  • Plant propagation
  • Seed saving
  • Composting
  • Worm farming
  • Keeping chickens
  • Low waste lunches.

A wonderful day was had by all and we pledged to make changes at the school.

School environmental management plans work across the key learning areas of the curriculum and the whole school community.

We start with local sustainability and over time develop student understanding of how their work contributes globally.

Students and staff manage, observe and monitor our school's resources, waste and physical surroundings, then take on activities to protect and improve our school and the local environment.

Your child will develop an understanding about:

  • the relationship between human activities and natural systems
  • sustainable management of the earth's resources
  • the inter-related nature of processes in the natural environment.

We encourage you to support your child's 'going green' activities, and to help them to learn to care for the environment as part of their everyday lives.
