Our Mission Statement
The aim of our 'Green Work' in the College is to increase our awareness of global concerns i.e. the food, energy and global warming crisis, to reflect upon our own personal and cultural responsibility and consider possible preventions and solutions to problems in these areas. We will be actively involved in these goals and there will be many opportunities for communication amongst other schools especially about the environment. Within these discussions we shall include topics of ideas, experiences and goals. Through this we hope they will take ownership of the project and become autonomous environmentalists.
‘Our Planet - Our Future'
Our prime objectives are to protect and improve the environment, to conserve energy and to promote sustainable ways of development. We play a central role in delivering the environmental priorities of Victoria College through our functions and our roles. We as members of the Eco Committee must work together to protect our planet. Our planet is ever changing and so will our school’s development of becoming a “greener” school.
Raising Awareness - A message from the Eco-Commitee
We believe that waste should not to be wasted. We want to raise awareness about the benefits of choosing the right option towards waste. We want everyone to willingly take ownership of one’s actions and to feel the difference when we do. To raise awareness of the current situation we created an anti-litter Game and an Eco Mural made from items which were deemed to be “waste”.
We believe that to be a sustainable school, we have to live within our means. That is to use what we need as effectively as possible and to have the right attitude to minimising waste.
