The school applied for a $1000 Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant for our project, Regeneration of school grounds, and we’ve been successful.
Our project's aim to is regenerate our school grounds, bringing together our school community. Our school wide student representative council leaders and Eco Guardians will buddy with students from Kindergarten to Year 6 to prepare, plant, mulch and water the site. This will include on-going maintenance as part the school’s sustainability practices. We identified key areas that require replanting of local native species to create habitats which will attract local wildlife such as skinks, blue tongue lizards and native birds. This project will be integrated with student inquiry learning, focusing on stewardship and sustainability, directly linking to outcomes and cross curriculum priorities in the Australian curriculum.
Curtin Primary School is one of 617 primary schools and early learning centres throughout Australia receiving a Woolworths Junior Landcare grant to help grow our next generation of environmental champions.
The grants are being funded with money made from the sale of the Woolworths recyclable Bag for good™ which was launched in 2018 when the supermarket stopped using single-use plastic bags.
The children and teachers are looking forward to working and learning from this project and we’ll keep you updated on the results.
