ST Luke’s Catholic Primary School has been recognised for its efforts to reduce the amount of waste disposed into landfill.
The Woodvale school will receive a grant of $4227 for their waste-wise project Closing the Recycling Loop with Chickens.
This will help the students set up an area for chickens to reduce organic waste, in addition to the school’s existing worm farm.
“Students at St Luke’s will be able to take real ownership over their school’s waste reduction efforts and learn about the impact they can make,” Kingsley MLA Jessica Stojkovski said.
“I’m really looking forward to watching this project evolve.
“I think it’s wonderful that children will be learning about recycling and living more sustainably in such a practical way.”
