Sustainability is one of three National Curriculum cross-curriculum priorities embedded in all learning areas.

About our sustainability program

Durack School believes the teaching of local environmental practices and the understanding of global sustainability issues is very important. As well as incorporating sustainability across the curriculum the following initiatives have been introduced at Durack School which involve students across the school:

  • Recycling program for plastics, paper and mobile phones.
  • School Garden maintained by students
  • Toad Busts (Cane toads) every term
  • Collection of cans for a container deposit scheme (to be introduced shortly)
  • Participation in National initiatives such as: Walk Safely to School Day, Nude Food Day and Clean Up Australia Day
  • Monitoring of water and electricity usage.
  • Focus on energy and water saving strategies eg water saving taps, sensor lights
