With such a successful year in 2018, the Sustainable Spartans are ready to make more sustainable changes in 2019. We kick off this year's calendar of events with Clean Up Australia Day on Thursday 28 February between 3.30 to 5.00pm.

The Sustainable Spartans committee has four sub-groups; PYP Sustainable Spartans (led by Mr Will Boston), MYP Sustainable Spartans (led by Mrs Helen Coombes), Senior Sustainable Spartans (led by Dr Michael Brohier) and Parent Sustainable Spartans (led by Mrs Katie Norman).

2019 - T1 - W2 - sustainable spartans

Information about our projects can be found on the Sustainable Spartans Schoolbox page – click here.

In 2018 we saw our biggest ever turnout for Clean Up Australia Day, with almost 100 students coming together to help rid our campus of litter and reduce the impact on wildlife and the environment. We hope this year is even bigger than last! Parents and friends are invited to volunteer at this Somerset Community event – please send me an email if you are interested in getting involved (hcoombes@somerset.qld.edu.au).

We will likely hold another Sustainable Sewing event this semester to create more Bounce Bags for use in the Bird & Bush Café. A gentle reminder that if you have use one of our Bounce Bags, please return it to the B&B so that other families may use them. We are currently very low on stock!
