Keen and green: free sustainability workshops for schools

30 June 2022

Mary’s Mount Primary School avoid single-use plastic with waste-free lunches.

Catholic school teachers, staff and parents keen to become more ‘green’ have been encouraged to sign up for a series of free waste reduction and sustainability workshops.

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation will host three workshops at Wembley, Cockburn and Fremantle as part of the WasteSorted Schools and Clean Schools initiatives in July and August.

It comes as eight environmentally conscious Catholic Education WA schools were awarded grants to create more sustainable practices earlier this year, as part of the WasteSorted Schools program.

Prior registration is recommended.
