Our College's 'Charter for Sustainability' is creating a College community and culture conscious of the need to care for and nurture our environment for a sustainable future. Students meet weekly to develop strategies to help make our College sustainable. TEC has ideas about how to improve Woodlawn's environmental future. By simple acts of recycling scrap paper, turning off lights in vacant classrooms and using the correct bin, we can be eco-friendly in the classroom. St John's cares about the enrivonment and the importance to stay green by doing small acts towards promoting ecological sustainability. You, me, we can make a difference!
Catchcry: "Carpe diem, Viridis diem" - Seize the day, Green day
The purpose of this charter is to outline the principles, rules and guidelines necessary for our College community to meet the needs of students, staff, parents and community members without compromising the needs of future generations.
To provide a sustainable college environment for all to enjoy into the future.
To engage our College community in activities that empower students, staff, parents and community members with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to achieve a sustainable future. We will respect our natural environment and the resources it offers us and provide a quality teaching and learning environment for all.
In 2014 our efforts were rewarded by achieving a Bronze Award in the Eco-Schools Program.
The Silver Award, received in 2015, is a milestone in our College’s progression towards environmental sustainability and in environmental education becoming strongly integrated across the school’s curriculum.
