Amaroo Primary


Philosophy and Ethos

Amaroo Primary’s environmental policies are considered part of the school’s ethos. The school takes advantage of special events such as Earth Day and World Environment Day to celebrate their vision of a sustainable future.

The school environment reflects a strong commitment to sustainability, with native plants fertilised by worm farm products and mulch, murals made from recycled materials and artwork (part of a Reconciliation Native Garden near the library) honouring its Indigenous connections.

The school’s efforts have been recognised and rewarded. Collie took out the National Tidy Towns Winner title in 2005, due in no small part to the efforts of Amaroo Primary. The school hosted the 2006 Tidy Towns media launch, gaining fantastic coverage on GWN. The community of Collie and its partnership with the school has been praised in many local news articles.
