The charter has been a work in progress since the beginning of the 2018 school year with Social Justice and Sustainability (SJS) representatives documenting how the school community should care for our planet.

“The process began with our SJS reps meeting and discussing the concept of documenting what we were currently doing to care for our environment, what we could improve on and why we think people in our community should care for the environment,” said principal Adrian Brown.

“SJS reps then met with their individual classes to brainstorm different ideas. All of these ideas were then grouped together and displayed in a poster for each classroom, using illustrations from the SJS reps themselves.”

Mr Brown said the charter was then turned into a book so it could become part of the school identity.

A competition was run for all students to enter illustrations matching each of the key areas within the environmental charter.

Catholic Education Week was held throughout the State from June 3-9.
