City of Canada Bay offers funding boost for school environmental projects

06 March 2018 | Environment

Primary and High Schools in the City of Canada Bay are invited to apply for grant funding for sustainability-focused projects through our 2018 Small Environmental Grants for Schools program, Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.

The annual program supports school based projects that demonstrate environmental sustainability principles, foster whole of school engagement and target behaviour change for sustainability.  

“Children not only learn important lessons about biodiversity, protecting our land and waterways and the impacts of climate change in the classroom but schools also offer students hands-on experience in implementing sustainability projects,” Mayor Tsirekas said.

“We are proud to support school initiatives that embed sustainable practices into learning environments by funding green projects that benefit both the school and broader community.”

Past initiatives funded via the grants program have included garden bed planting, weed eradication, new bike racks, worm farms and establishing a garden using recycled coffee cups.

Applications close on Friday, 16 March.

A total of $9000 in grant funding is available in three different categories:

  • 1x $1000 for Primary schools
  • 1x $2000 for a High School
  • 2x $3000 for Primary schools.
