Our Environmental Team works towards reducing our ecological footprint through establishing and maintaining sustainable practices. This year we are working on making use of our sustainability resources. We are looking forward to getting the vegetable patch back up and running, and creating a system where the produce harvested will be used within the school community.
We have two Environmental Leaders from each class in Years 1 - 6 and they play an important role at Milgate Primary School. They speak regularly at whole school assemblies, monitor and encourage their peers to bring rubbish free lunches as well as help hand out awards to students that are demonstrating good environmental practices.
Our Environmental Leaders are involved in a range of special programs, including the Young Leaders Sustainability Conference and the Currawong Schools Program. The Environmental Leaders assist in the planting and maintenance of the school vegetable garden and look after the compost. We look forward to involving our leaders in more school initiatives this year, giving them a sense of responsibility to look after their school environment as well as their future environment.
