To achieve five star certification EPS needs to complete five modules (Core, Energy, Water, Waste and Biodiversity).
EPS staff, parents and students are currently working together on step 1 of our sustainability plan. The Core Module sets the direction for how we can become a sustainable school.
The next step for EPS is to look at ways to reduce energy use across the school through the completion of the Energy Module.
EPS was successful in receiving an Energy Efficiency Grant of $10,000, part of which was used to train our ‘Green Team’ to carry out an energy audit and make energy saving recommendations.
Our school also encourages sustainable travel by promoting a ride/walk to school day each term.
