St James Parish School

MR HOWARD — Last Friday I had the pleasure of visiting St James Parish School in Sebastopol to hear what students have been doing to lead the way in environmental sustainability, which has seen the school earning a 3-star ResourceSmart Schools accreditation. Students have integrated a number of initiatives into the school, including creating a school veggie garden with composting, organising plastic-free wrapping days for school lunches, changing over to energy-saving light bulbs, placing signage beside light switches and taps promoting energy-efficient use and publishing articles about sustainability in the school newsletter. Well done, St James.
