Catholic Regional College, St Albans

2016 Winner - Community Leadership Secondary School of the Year

Students from Catholic Regional College, St. Albans

Catholic Regional College in St. Albans has created an innovative garden and community outreach program that advocates for a world where students, local communities and society become agents of environmental and social regeneration.

The Arthur St Community Garden project is a living, breathing enterprise that continues to evolve and flourish, helping the school to form new partnerships, grow fresh food and re-evaluate its policy and curriculum around sustainability.

The garden allows students to gain a greater perspective about what it means to be a citizen of the planet – in union with the earth and each other. The school works to build its sustainability capacity of students, staff and community.
