Amaroo Primary


Teaching and learning

Students are involved in the school’s successful programs at every stage. Year 5-7 students are invited to join the ‘Ground Crew’ team, who participate in a range of activities during lunchtimes, including monitoring the recycling program. Each week, student representatives collect full recycling crates and sort the materials.

“Since the program is voluntary, students are motivated to come back as they know that they have the flexibility to choose the times and activities where they can help.” Mary Molloy, Specialist Environmental Teacher, 2005 / 2006

As a special incentive, students enjoy filling up their Passport for a Tidy School. Duty teachers award stickers to students who pick up litter at lunchtime. Full passports are rewarded with a lucky dip at the fortnightly student assemblies.
