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.
