I dream of a school


I dream of Australian schools where every roof that can physically have a Solar panel on it does.


I dream of Australian schools where there are plenty of trees to help increase the shade, reduce the temperature and reduce the need for air conditioner.


I dream of Australian schools where there are double glazed windows and exceptional insulation to improve the temperature regulation of the classrooms.


I dream of Australian schools where paper use is reduced to the necessities and recycled appropriately.


I dream of Australian schools where students bring their lunches that are low in packaging and high in nutrition.


I dream of Australian schools where tuck-shops are structured to work in a cycle, not in a straight line, where students are responsible for cleaning their plates, and packaging is limited.


I dream of Australian schools where water usage is efficient and water tanks are used to supply the majority of the water in use.


I dream of Australian schools where stationery is reused, pass down, recycled and reduced.


I dream of Australian schools clothing their students in clothes that are made by people who are not exploited in their work.


I dream of Australian schools where students pass on their clothes to younger students.


I dream of Australian schools where whiteboard markers are either refilled or recycled or not used entirely.


I dream of Australian schools where the students’ food scraps are composted and used to feed the soil that grows more food and plants.


I dream of Australian schools where students actively learn about how to mitigate climate change, where their behaviors are modelled by teachers and living a sustainable life is connected to their routine.


I dream of Australian schools where students are aware that their actions are part of a larger impact on global sustainability.


I dream of Australian schools where teachers and families work together to share fresh produce from their backyards to reduce the food mileage.
