St Kilda Primary School

2016 Winner - Waste Primary School of the Year

Students from St Kilda Primary School

St Kilda Primary School’s student-led teams have focused on sustainability priorities across the school, which have led to a reduction in landfill and e-waste.

The school has created a community recycling depot that collects printer cartridges, batteries, mobile phones, corks and soft plastic. A ‘Waste Warriors’ team collects data on whole of school landfill and recycling, and reminds students to be mindful of which items can be recycled from their lunch box.

St Kilda Primary School is committed to creating and maintaining a sustainable planet for future generations and tries to ensure that the future development of the school is ecological sensitive, representing best practice in environmental management. In a very short time the school has transformed itself into a green haven by decreasing waste, energy and water use significantly, with students leading the sustainability charge under the guidance of dedicated teachers and parents.
