St Louis De Montfort's Primary

2016 Winner - Water Primary School of the Year

Students from St Louis De Montforts, Aspendale

St Louis is well known for its ongoing sustainability achievements, and over the past year they have stepped things up with a new and unique water habitat area to support students’ understanding of water conservation. The school’s water initiatives are empowering students to see water as a precious commodity. Students are encouraged to engage in experiential, participatory and multidisciplinary approaches to build understanding, knowledge and responsibility about water.

St Louis monitors its water use through ResourceSmart Schools and SWEP, and engages with local wetlands by taking part in activities like testing water quality pH levels for optimum animal and plant growth.

From driving the popluar Steps to Sustainability Conference and establishing partnerships with the local community, this school’s commitment to student water education is inspirational.
