$3,500 in Eco Schools Grants for Blue Mountains
Member of the Legislative Council and Blue Mountains resident Shayne Mallard MP announced a $3,500 Eco Schools Grant for Katoomba Public School to encourage environmental learning opportunities for students, teachers and the school community.
Minister for the Environment Gabrielle Upton said “The Eco Schools Grant Program provides funding for schools to create environmental learning opportunities for students, teachers and the school community.”
“The school children participating in these grassroots environmental projects will learn skills for sustainable living, and develop an appreciation for their local environment.”
Ms Upton said the Eco Schools grants would help young people to learn and value the natural environment.
“These grants help to educate students on the importance of protecting the environment for future generations.”
Mr Mallard said “Eco School’s projects provide hands-on, curriculum-based environmental education for students, with a focuss on strong student participation.”
“At Katoomba Public School students will complete a waste survey before implementing a comprehensive waste management system. This will include enhancing their composting system and introducing a Recycling Station for sorting waste. “Students will be pivotal in conducting research, contributing ideas and educating their fellow students about the need for reducing waste and recycling/composting the vast majority of waste produced in their school.”
