Celebrating local sustainability champions and environmental initiatives On Friday 15th November, Tweed Shire Council’s inaugural Sustainability Awards celebrated champions in the community who are going above and beyond for the sustainability of the Tweed Shire.
Sathya Sai College was awarded the Sustainability – Schools - People’s Choice Award. The slogan for the College’s submission was - Learning about litter, living life cleaner and making it greener
The practices implemented at the school that were highlighted are :- Red-bin free school grounds, creating healthy habits by eating nude food, connecting with nature during activities such as outdoor classroom day, weekly gardening activities, developing edible gardens by growing a “Juicy Fruit Patch” and using the 3 R’s: Refuse, Reduce, Recycle.
The students, staff and parents have gradually changed the waste management processes and culture at the school community. This has also been achieved thanks to the support of Eco-Schools, North East Waste and Tweed Shire Council.
