Montmorency South is continually working towards making our world a more sustainable place.
Our sustainability program is highly valued in the school and wider community.
The school endeavours to provide students with a wide range of knowledge in various environmental and sustainability areas, as well as catering for individual interests and needs of students.
ELFS (Environmental Leaders For Sustainability) is a voluntary group of students from Prep to Grade 6 who have an interest in the environment and making our school a more sustainable place. The school environmental captains lead the other students through small environmental projects throughout the school. The Environmental Captains for 2018 are Emily Brennan and Ashlee Ignatiadis.
Environmental programs and projects that take place at Montmorency South include:
- Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program
- AussiVic 5 star sustainable schools program – certified in Core, Waste and Biodiversity
- National Schools Solar Program and the installation of solar panels
- The preservation of the school’s Biodiversity Reserve
- Environmental and sustainability based curriculum programs
- Participation in events including Ride2School Day, Walk2School Day and National Tree Day
- Participation in Kids Teaching Kids programs run locally and state wide.
- Active members/participants in local TEN (Teachers Environment Network) meetings.
MSPS uses its sustainability program to connect with the school and wider community. We have many dedicated helpers from the community helping with our Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program and with other programs and projects throughout the school.
