PublishingPageContent

Environmental sustainability is one of Amaroo's two main pillars, as reflected in our mission statement (the other being Indigenous Perspectives), and is recognised in the Australian Curriculum as a cross-curriculum priority area.
Although elements of sustainability are present in all Amaroo programs, sustainability is the particular focus of programs such as Catchment Management, Exploring Ecosystems, Habitat Investigations, If Trees Could Talk, Power of One, Stream Scene and Watch Your Waste.

Sustainability at home and in business

Environmentally positive energy measures include the use of solar and LED technology and building insulation as well as behaviours such as turning off lights and appliances when they're not in use. More hints for saving energy.

A sustainable environment is also one in which waste is minimised and reuse/recycling of used materials is the norm.

Guide to recycling in the Toowoomba Region

Amaroo has prepared a guide to options for recycling all kinds of materials in the Toowoomba Region.

Sustainability in schools

The Queensland Sustainable Schools website can assist schools in all aspects of sustainability, including the development of a School Environment Management Plan (SEMP).

The website also provides links to many resources for integrating sustainability into everyday teaching.
