Our Story So Far…

Each day during of Enviroweek we will participate in a different challenge to improve our school and local environment!

At Tyabb Primary School we have student group called HEAP (Health, Environment and Animal Patrol). Students range from prep to grade 6 and it is their job to promote health and wellbeing and environmental issues within the school. Each fortnight the group meets and discusses issues and the action we can take to improve our school and the environment. This year we are having a major focus on our vegetable garden; getting it looking inviting and up and running with lots of fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs that the school community and families can use. Within this project we have also introduced worm farms and compost bins and have bought buckets to catch waste water from our taps to water the garden. We are hopeful that we can make a big impact this year so our garden will be a success in the future. We also have designed and created a recipe book to help raise funds. At Tyabb we have also been lucky enough to receive a grant for an Audio Trail to go through our schoolgrounds and neighbouring Olivers Creek. We are really excited to see where this project leads and how we can link it to our science, health and history curriculum. At Tyabb we are trying hard to develop a culture of envionmental awareness and change whereby we are all responsible for our local and wider surroundings and take positive action. We are always looking for new and exciting ways to improve our school community!
