Quintilian School is committed to our students understanding sustainability and water management practices. We believe that through education and modelling, we can make a difference and instil a strong respect for the environment in our students as well as the wider Quintilian community.
Waste wise strategies are taught to all year levels from Kindergarten to Year 6 through mini waste wise workshops, specific lessons and incursions. Quintilian also participates in the Containers for Change program, encouraging students and families to recycle their drink containers. All funds raised from this initiative go back into the school’s STEM and Sustainability projects.
Our chickens roam freely about our organic vegetable gardens and they are cared for by our children.
In addition to the educational value, the gardens are used to demonstrate the connection between the recycling of waste, the chickens, and the growing of vegetables.
We educate and teach strategies for using water sparingly whenever possible, visiting our local water treatment plant, etc. and we are an accredited “Water Wise School.”
We participate in energy competitions whenever possible (eg. Synergy’s Switch Off Competition), to promote a whole school approach to conserving energy. You can learn more about our renewable energy system here.
