Building a sustainable culture at Aronmore

Aranmore Catholic Primary School is firmly committed to building a strong culture of sustainability within its school community.

“As a Waste Wise school, we implement educational strategies across all learning areas that promote the ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ concept,” said Principal Margaret Williamson.

“We encourage our students each day to look for new ways to reduce our water usage. We have water saving taps and work closely with our local council to ensure effective watering of ovals and verges.”

Students are also educated on the diet of worms as Aranmore Primary maintains a thriving worm farm which is used on its flourishing school garden. The school also has a highly visible and dedicated Green Space where students and teachers recycle batteries, oral care products, ink cartridges and mobile phones.

The Year Six leaders have also formed a dedicated Environmental Council, which is responsible for the day-to-day recycling in the school of items such as paper, card and other co-mingled products.  Aluminium cans go to the Wheelchairs for Kids initiative, which makes wheelchairs for children in underprivileged countries.

Aranmore Catholic Primary School is certainly doing its very best to produce good global citizens who understand and support the principles of sustainability.
