As a school community, we are committed to meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
The concept of sustainability is composed of three pillars: economic, environmental, and social - also known informally as profits, planet, and people.
Working with young people we already have an opportunity to educate and inform students about their environment but we also have a responsibility to set an example and show how, through simple actions, each individual, each house, each company, through a little thought and determination, can make a difference to the local environment. The small changes made locally can then help to make a massive change globally.
