Sustainable Learning Environment

Sustainability

Situated on the picturesque Torndirrup Peninsula, Little Grove Primary is deeply rooted in its connection to the environment, understanding the crucial need for a sustainable future that respects both nature and community.

At Little Grove Primary we provide engaging cross curricular activities to encourage the exploration and appreciation of our local flora and fauna.

We engage with the local community to assist our programmes, sourcing the knowledge of local elders to share their expertise regarding our school’s natural surroundings as well as agencies such as the Fisheries Department to support development of appropriate approaches to maintainable practises.

Our outdoor classroom, nestled on the edge of the school oval, reflects our commitment to sustainability and community collaboration. Adorned with vibrant depictions of native animals (our faction symbols), it serves as a hub for outdoor learning, surrounded by plantings of local bushfoods and designed to facilitate rich educational experiences.

Students actively contribute to our sustainability efforts through projects such as researching local species, designing habitats to support biodiversity, and participating in beach clean-ups. They also take the lead in initiatives like creating worm tubes for our school gardens, native tree plantings, organizing fundraisers for threatened species, and brainstorming solutions for local ecological challenges.

Currently, our students are undertaking an exciting project to develop a QR code-centred educational walkway through the nature play area, showcasing their research on local flora and fauna to visitors and the wider school community.

Watch this space as we continue to inspire and empower our students to make a positive impact on the world around them, one sustainable step at a time.
