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.
Students at Mount Lewis Infants School have the opportunity to participate in the development and maintenance of our school vegetable garden. Classes regularly enjoy fresh produce from the garden and use it to cook delicious dishes to share. Students learn about sustainability and take part in such discussions.
