Environmental and Sustainability

At Mernda Primary School we are continuing to care for the environment by implementing sustainable practices throughout the school.
Across the year levels, units of work have been created that encompass environment and sustainability such as:

  • Water use and conservation
  • Planting seeds, seedlings and native plants
  • reduction of litter and waste (Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle)

Classrooms implement reduce, reuse, recycle practices to reduce the amount of waste we are sending to landfill. ‘Nude food’ is encouraged and recognised at assembly with awards given to the class that generates the least amount of waste.

To support our practise in reducing waste, every classroom has an environment tub that is used at recess and lunchtime for students to return their rubbish free lunch containers.

Lunchtime Activities

Lunchtime activities that support the care and promotion of the environment take place during lunch play on certain days. Activities such as seed planting, garden maintenance, planting, vegetable growing and mosaic art projects are part of what we do.

Mernda Pathways

We have very exciting news……………………after a long process, Bicycle Network have funded 3 marked pathways directing children to our school. The pathway marking was laid in August 2014 and the staff and students celebrated the event with a huge Walk/Ride to school morning. There was a great turnout of children, parents and teachers taking advantage of the new pathways by walking, cycling, scooting to school along the marked pathways. Now that these pathways will be visible to all members of the Mernda community it would be fabulous to see more children walking and riding to school on a regular basis or using the pathways on the weekends. Each pathway is named, so the community can now say, “Meet you at ‘Womble Lane’ or ‘Wetlands Way’. Walking or riding to school or just getting out and about is such a great way of keep fit for everyone and gives everyone time to talk and chat along the way about the coming day and events that will take place.
