On Thursday the 7th of May, the organisation CERES (Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies) visited Nossal High School to run a ‘Do More with Less’ incursion. Alex from CERES held a workshop with NEST (Nossal Environment and Sustainability Team) about alternatives that we can implement in our daily lives to promote sustainable living. Designated with a variety of tasks that explore the concept of sustainability and leadership, NEST learnt about the importance of the usage of renewable sources and the impact of leadership in encouraging change. CERES and NEST then combined ideas and compiled a list of qualities they saw as top priorities in a leader, giving insight into what values NEST needs to adopt as a group. The workshop provided many new exciting ideas for future activities and the changes we can encourage the development of NHS as an eco-friendly environment. The incursion concluded with the students designing some projects to work on to improve sustainability around the school. We thank and greatly appreciate CERES and the teachers involved for organising such an informative and valuable session.
