O.I.S. is a GreenGold Environmental School. What does this mean? For our school it means doing everything we can to reduce our footprint on our environment, and to live harmoniously alongside the school’s estuary. We want to educate our students so they can make informed decisions, that will help them preserve and protect the future of the environment in which they live.
Our BIG Vision:
- To maintain our Green Gold Enviroschool status
- To have small projects each term so that there is clear and visible evidence of the work our students are doing
- To make OIS as beautiful on the outside as we know it is on the inside
- To spread the message into our local community
Teachers oversee the various areas of the Environmental Team, but ultimately it is up to our students to run things. We believe that empowering our students is the best way to educate them and we are excited about the work that is currently being done in our school. The biggest focus has been on Trees for Survival and school beautification.
