At Taren Point Public School, we are proud to have an extensive environmental and sustainability focus.
Our programs are well supported by the school community as we offer recycling opportunities through Return and Earn and a variety of recycling options (Soft plastics, Lids 4 Kids, Organics, Paper & Cardboard). We aim to recycle all of our waste and reduce land fill to zero. Our chickens and garden are the beneficiaries of compost and worm farm byproducts.
The children enjoy gardening and generating produce for consumption at our school canteen and events. Our chickens, Phoenix Snowball, Pom Pom, Henny, Penny and Bolt happily lay free range eggs that the community enjoys.
The gardens benefit greatly from our rain water collection tanks and keep watering costs to a minimum.
Through these school wide sustainability programs, students learn the value of our natural resources and the importance of minimising our foot print, preserving what we have for future generations.
