The Sustainable Spartans, a group of students (ranging from Junior School to Seniors), are passionately developing a whole-school approach to sustainability. The Committee aims to create an awareness and take action within the school, intertwining the educational ideologies of sustainability within the College’s curriculum.

Hello everyone! We are the Sustainable Spartans Committee.

Our first sustainable action is focused on reducing the plastic usage of the Bird and Bush Café, more specifically eliminating plastic bags in the Retail Centre. As a sustainable alternative, bags will be sewn out of second-hand uniforms and will be available to borrow (and return) to the Bird and Bush Café.

A sewing day will commence on Thursday 9 November, from periods 1 to 3 (8.40am – 12.00noon) in the Knowledge and Information Precinct (Library).

We invite parents and students to come along and bring their sewing machines to help sew; second-hand uniforms will be provided.

We’d love to see you there!
