CERES ResourceSmart Schools Delivery in 2017

What a year it has been for ResourceSmart Schools! We’ve enjoyed working with schools in the Northern, Southern and Eastern metro regions through their modules and Stars to progress through to 5Star status. This year we worked with a total of 378 schools and centres, with 80 receiving certification in a module and/or Star.

To further support schools through the program, we ran 13 regional Progress workshops throughout the year in the Northern, Southern and Eastern metro regions, which were attended by a total of 252 teachers. Thanks to the following schools for hosting these events –

  • Athol Road Primary School
  • Auburn South Primary School
  • Banyule Primary School
  • Cornish College, Bangholme
  • Croydon Hills Primary School
  • Glen Waverley South Primary School
  • Harvest Home Primary School
  • Mount Eliza Primary School
  • Nossal High School, Berwick
  • Patterson River Secondary College
  • St. Monica’s College, Epping
  • St. Peter’s School, Epping
  • Whitefriars College, Donvale

Financially, schools in the 3 regions kicked goals with a saving of $1,608,063 in 2017 as a result of some impressive environmental savings.

At this year’s ResourceSmart Schools Awards, 19 schools in the Northern, Southern and Eastern metro regions were up as finalists, with 6 schools taking out awards in 8 categories. Huge congratulations to the following schools:
