SUSTAINABILITY IN THE CURRICULUM

THE SUSTAINABILITY STORY AT MERICI

At Merici, sustainability is a big part of how we operate. We have sustainability in the curriculum, with a Sustainability Elective for students in Years 9 and 10, a specialised Stewardship unit for Year 7 Religion students, and environment-related units in all other subjects. It’s also an extra-curricular activity: our student environment team, SAM (Sustainability At Merici), is an option for students from Year 7 to 12 who are interested in making a difference at school and in the community. Finally, we seek to imbed sustainability into our everyday operations on campus, continually improving our food, energy, waste and water systems.
