Sustainability a winner in recycling week
ST Mark’s Anglican Community School has been recognised for its sustainability program just days after discussing it with the West Coast Eagles.
The Hillarys school won the United Nations Association of Australia WA (UNAAWA) Global Goals Challenge for Primary Schools for the years 2 to 5 program.
The actions help students understand small changes make a difference.
Work includes running a community garden, reducing waste through worm farms and recycling.
“The program encompasses the knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions that will assist students to live and work successfully in the 21st Century,” principal Steven Davies said.
“The response from our students to the program is very encouraging and it is wonderful to see them become ambassadors for change.”
Rachel Parnaby and Zac Fitzgerald from the Eagles recently visited St Mark’s.
St Mark’s students shared their eco smarts with the Eagles when representatives visited with their premiership cup.
