Going green

School environmental management plans work across the key learning areas of the curriculum and the whole school community.

We start with local sustainability and over time develop student understanding of how their work contributes globally.

Students and staff manage, observe and monitor our school's resources, waste and physical surroundings, then take on activities to protect and improve our school and the local environment.

Your child will develop an understanding about:

  • the relationship between human activities and natural systems
  • sustainable management of the earth's resources
  • the inter-related nature of processes in the natural environment

We encourage you to support your child's 'going green' activities and to help them to learn to care for the environment as part of their everyday lives.

The Green Team – Promoting environmental sustainability at Curl Curl North

Curl Curl North has strong reputation as an environmentally aware school with strong Environmental Education programs. A Green Team made up of parents, teachers and community members plans environmental projects for the school. In addition to this an enthusiastic student environmental team called the Teenie Weenie Greenies operates.

Links to Key Learning Areas and the use of other resources

Integral to the School Plans and its targets are environmental links and excursions within the local area. The cross-curriculum approach taken to K-6 environmental education and the further development of sustainability at Curl Curl North PS, allows students, teachers and parents the opportunity to work together establishing partnerships with Warringah Council, The Coastal Environment Centre, Kimbriki Waste and Recycling Centre, Curl Curl Lagoon Management Team, Manly Dam and Taronga Zoo.

The high level of engagement from the students involved in these excursions and learning experiences, demonstrates the building of understanding, transfer of knowledge and increased commitment to managing our local environment and our impact on it.
