Our Ecological Footprint
Hillbrook has a very strong philosophy when it comes to the footprint we leave behind. Our aim is to:
Leave No Trace
Whether it is in the school grounds or when our classes go on camp or participate in Outdoor Education days.
We aim to leave our land in the best shape we can for future generations. The Traditional Custodians of this land cared for it and nurtured it and we, the current custodians, must leave this land in the best possible shape for future generations.
It is up to everyone of us here at Hillbrook to do our part to minimise our ecological and environmental impact as much as we can, and to restore as much balance as we can to the land where we learn and work.
Downloadable Bin Signs
Are you confused about what items you can recycle? What are soft plastics and what is a landfill only item? We have some handy signs we use around the school and thought we'd share them with you. Please share, download and use. Everything you can do to help reduce landfill is going to reduce your footprint, and that is great for everyone.
