At Poynter Primary we have many students’ with a ‘green thumb’. Our Sustainable Schools initiative includes regular planting of vegetables in our ‘Sustainability Gardens’. Our outdoor ‘Learn-space’ was completed in 2014 with the finishing touches being made to our mural and a shade sail being attached to the area to provide protection from the elements.
‘Green Teams’ were initiated in the Early Childhood and the Senior School. The Year 5 and 6 team includes 13 students, 1 teacher and 1 parent. The students run a composting program from Years 1 to 6 and assist teachers in the maintenance of the vegetable gardens. In 2015 students have formed a Year 5 and 6 Sustainability Leadership team.
