Milton State School Sustainability Committee
Within Milton State School, a dedicated teacher and parent group have formed a Sustainability Committee with a student representative from their grade 6 leadership team. The Committee’s purpose is to encourage and support students and teachers to work collaboratively with the wider school community to raise awareness and actively participate in the support of environmental sustainability.
Initiatives undertaken in 2016 by the Committee include:
- A green sustainability theme at the Milton Fashion Show
- Installation of a water refill trailer at the 2016 Milton Fair preventing 2250 single use water bottles entering landfill
- Implementation of a soft plastics recycling program at the school
