Peninsula is proudly a ResourceSmart school, part of an award-winning State Government program that helps schools benefit from embedding sustainability across campus, curriculum, community and culture.

As an environmentally conscious school, Peninsula actively engages and inspires all members of the school community to develop a more sustainable environment by promoting best practice. This includes introducing exemplary practices in waste management, water and energy consumption and the promotion of biodiversity throughout the campus.

Initiatives this year include 20 Peninsula students from Years 5, 6 and 9 participating in the Kids Teaching Kids Environmental Conference at Point Nepean. Peninsula’s Year 5 students also collaborated to create ‘3cycle’, a closed loop prototype they designed to capture plastics before they enter our waterways. The students pitched the idea at the Mornington Peninsula Schools Waste Pioneers Project. The collaboration came on the back of the Genius Hour initiative, which encouraged students to explore global sustainable development goals.

Students, staff and parents also passionately support the Envision Hands project. Envision is a company based in Seaford that is collecting and recycling plastic bottle tops for a social enterprise project. Collected bottle tops are recycled into filament to create prosthetic hands thanks to 3D printers.

Other initiatives include Nude Food Day, waste-free Wednesdays and a gardening club.

Members of Peninsula’s Sustainability Syndicate meet weekly to work on initiatives and embed sustainable practices. Students are encouraged to critically examine the diversity of views and values that influence sustainable development and practice. Peninsula’s curriculum provides students with the opportunity to participate individually and collectively in programs that will help to establish more sustainable ways of living.

Peninsula Grammar is the Mornington Peninsula’s premier co-educational school. For more information, visit www.peninsulagrammar.vic.edu.au or phone the Registrar on 9788 7702.
