Winters Flat Primary School is commited to sustainability and is an active participant in the ResourceSmart Schools program - a Victorian Government initiative that helps schools benefit from embedding sustainability in everything they do.
We take action to minimise waste, save energy and water, promote biodiversity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This helps up to reduce costs while giving students the opportunity to learn about sustainability in a tangible and realistic environment.
As the 2015 ResourceSmart School of the year and winner of the 2016 Premier's Sustainability Award, we are also a 5 Star Leadership school. 5 Star schools must demonstrate significant leadership in each of the five ResourceSmart Schools modules of Core, Biodiversity, Energy, Water and Waste as well as actively help other schools to start their own sustainability journey, and show the Victorian community what can be done at the local level.
All classes are involved with students driving all programs/activities.
