Sustainable Projects 301

This course is designed to help students get involved with environmental and sustainability issues in our community. It draws from all areas of the curriculum.

We’ll be working together with outside organisations to provide lots of opportunities outside the classroom (including camps offsite) and potential involvement in short courses (like Predator Control, Urban Agriculture and Plant Management). There’s the potential to get involved in a one day a week course, and a Leadership course. There might be up to 18 credits in addition to the standards outlined below. 

In the classroom we’ll be exploring our local environment, and work on actually making a difference. This will involve discussion, speeches, reading articles, writing reports, analysing data, problem solving, and planning skills. You’ll need to bring passion, a willingness to give things a try, and to take charge. 

In previous years this class has created gardens, supplied rubbish bins,  created podcasts, or organised tours for the public. If you think it’ll make a difference, you can do it in this class.
