ENVIRONMENTAL GRANTS PROGRAM

Sustainability initiatives at schools supported by Randwick Council Environmental Grants

Ten Randwick City schools are closer to achieving their own sustainability projects thanks to grants handed out this week by Randwick City Council as part of the Environmental Grants for Schools program.

Funded by the Sustaining Our City environmental levy, just over $30,000 in grant funding was provided to kickstart a variety of projects, including the installation of electric vehicle charge stations, development of a sustainability program, installation of bike racks, solar panels on school roof tops, as well as the creation of school food gardens.

Congratulations go to the following school  funding recipients:

  • Chifley Public School for a bush food precinct
  • Kensington Primary School and Maroubra Bay Public School for bike and scooter racks for the school
  • Randwick Public School for bringing the B, B & B (birds, butterflies, and bees) Highway project
  • St Spyridon College and Saint Spyridon College Junior School for creating vegetable gardens and an outdoor classroom
  • Maroubra Junction Primary School and Mt Sinai College for funding contributing toward the installation of solar panels*
  • Brigidine College Randwick, for support in installating two electric vehicle charge stations
  • La Perouse Primary School for the development of a Whole School Sustainability Program.
