Sustainability Action Planning

In 2004, awareness of the meaning of sustainability was instigated within the school community and new on-site projects started. Although there have been changes in staff leadership, the philosophy and commitment of the school continues, with full support from the current Principal.

Led by the current science teacher, Dandaragan has a Sustainability Steering Committee, which includes the principal, staff, parents, a parent representative from the Billinu Aboriginal Community, and a Natural Resource Management (NRM) officer. The school also intends to add two student members to the committee so that student views are represented, and sustainability messages are effectively communicated to their peers.

All decisions made by the Committee are discussed and approved at staff meetings before being promoted to parents at Parent Information Nights.

The school’s Environmental Projects Plan outlines a range of projects and identifies the related learning outcomes, as well as specifying actions to be taken, people to be involved, time lines and funding.
