Recycling

Sustainable Practices

Unfortunately, a lot of what we do can’t be seen.  Through our own funding, as well as Federal and State Grants in recent years, Le Page Primary recycles waste paper, plastics and cardboard, our water tanks top up the cisterns in the student toilets (pictured right, just to prove it) and we have solar hot water in the Staff/Admin./Sick Bay area (Garry didn’t want to climb on the roof to photograph the solar panels and the pipes). 

The Junior Learning Community building is also supported by water tanks with environmental controls within the building on timers/sensors to ensure we’re not overly damaging the ozone layer or drawing a carbon tax.

Sustainable Practices are part of our curriculum and the way we do things in a very practical sense.
