Our commitment to environmental sustainability can unite individuals across our school to create a healthier place to learn and work.
Empowering and encouraging the Mulgrave community to become agents of change toward a more environmentally just and sustainable world.
Sustainability and environmental justice play a central role within all aspects of our school in line with our commitment to equip lifelong learners to thrive in a culturally diverse and interdependent world. Mulgrave students have a comprehensive age-appropriate understanding of the critical environmental issues facing our world, are empowered, and take positive action to face these issues locally and globally. As a school dedicated to leadership in environmental sustainability, we are committed to minimising our environmental footprint through progressive changes that enable us to be a net zero school by 2050.
At Mulgrave, we believe:
Environmental impact must be considered in all aspects of the school and school life
Our school strives to be a leader in implementing science-informed sustainability initiatives
Learning in, about, and for the environment is an essential part of the education of each and every student
Every community member should have an awareness of their environmental footprint and how they can use this to take positive action
Education must include opportunities for our students to engage in further climate action and sustainability initiatives, both within the school and the wider community
Our environmental solutions must take into consideration the possible impact of social inequities locally and internationally
To fulfil our values, we are focussing our actions, practices, and habits on developing a culture of sustainability. The following are our core themes and examples of related environmental sustainability actions:
