Our latest exciting goal is to embed sustainability into the curriculum and the college culture. Our Principal has agreed to establish the MAC Kaitiaki innovation Challenge aiming to raise awareness and empower students to be guardians of our resources by the end of term 1 2014.

We are working on:

  • An audit of the resources used
  • How to communicate our project to students and staff and enthuse them
  • A repository of curriculum resources
  • Best actions to save money to build our seed fund
  • Funding applications

Measuring change

The Enviroschools Foundation would like to welcome us to register to the Enviroschools Measuring Change Tool at www.measuringchange.org.nz.
Once we’ve registered we can start collecting and uploading our Waste, Water, Energy and Landscapes data.
 
The information and resources in the Measuring Change tool will help us find out how sustainable these areas are and then track our improvements over time. The sooner we start to measure our change, the sooner we will have a full record of the progress that we’re making.
 
There are also great spot prizes for the first enviroschools to get their data in!

Are we in to start MEASURING OUR CHANGE ?
