Collingwood – A Sustainable School

Collingwood College has started it’s journey to becoming more sustainable by getting involved in the ResourceSmart-AuSSI Vic (Australian Sustainable Schools Initiative) program.

ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic is currently an initiative of the Victorian Government and is managed by Sustainability Victoria.

ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic provides a holistic approach to sustainability. It integrates educational, environmental, social and economic outcomes so that schools do not see each area in isolation but as components of the bigger picture of sustainability. Schools are supported to develop a ‘whole school approach’ to building sustainability into the fabric of everyday school and community life.

ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic consists of 5 modules:

In 2013  our school started the Core Module of this initiative.

As part of this initiative, we have created a student action team who will be the environmental leaders of the school.We have drafted a Whole School Sustainability Policy and developed a draft plan for change for the future.
