Sustainability

At Jolimont Primary, in line with the Australian Curriculum, we are committed to developing a sustainable school through sustainability education which is futures-oriented, focusing on protecting environments and creating a more ecologically and socially just world through informed action. Through partnerships with the community we aim to embed sustainability practices within the culture of our school community.

Through on-going programs, we will build capacities for thinking and acting in ways that are necessary to create a more sustainable future to promote reflective thinking processes in young people and empower them to design action that will lead to a more equitable and sustainable future.

We are implementing the Department of Education’s Sustainable Schools – WA initiative which provides two key aspects of sustainability: Ecological Footprint and Social Handprint.

Jolimont Primary School Business Plan 2021-2024: Sustainability is captured through two focus areas: Student Learning, Achievement and Well-Being and Enriched Community Partnerships. The Strategic Pillars which aim to best foster sustainability in our school are:

  • strengthening student voice
  • enhance opportunities for our students through community partnerships

We are committed to building a sustainable school which is aligned with the Sustainable Schools-WA initiative, in order to decrease our school’s ecological footprint and increase our school’s social handprint.
