Keep Australia Beautiful Tasmania state judge, Lesley Gardner was deeply impressed by the Mount Stuart Primary School’s understanding and practice ofsustainability within a global context.
The Student Representative Council/War on Waste Team have thoughtfully and skillfully guided the integration of sustainability as the number one priority of their own education, how the school operates and connections with community.
Pervasive throughout the school’s ethos is a genuine appreciation of the interconnectedness of all things and the role of education as a catalyst for a future where human rights, cultural diversity and environmental protection are the norm. The students and teachers have taken to heart, their role in creating a sustainable, just and diverse future.
This is an outstanding and inspiring achievement and an example of true leadership by showing others the way rather than following.
