The senior school recently established a student group called 'Care For Country', which aims to promote sustainability and indigenous perspectives within the College and the wider community. The group includes representatives from each year level, with the support of senior leaders and key staff. Its primary objective is to provide students with a platform to express their passion for these important areas and act as a conduit between the College and the student body.

During their inaugural meeting, the group engaged in a meaningful dialogue to identify areas of need and opportunities related to sustainability and indigenous perspectives. They then collaborated digitally to further explore and expand on these ideas. As a result, several new initiatives and projects emerged, which were presented and discussed during their subsequent meeting. To ensure effective implementation and management, students were assigned to focus groups to drive these initiatives and projects forward.

These focus groups include:

  • Textile recycling
  • Becoming a plastic free school
  • Reconciliation Week
  • Acknowledgement of Country video for the College
  • Outdoor learning/prayer spaces and revegetation
  • Waste management
  • Electricity usage
  • Social media and communications of social justice issues

We look forward to updating you on the progress of these focus groups in the future.
