Taronga Zoo Sustainability Leadership Expo

From the Sustainability Group Coordinator, Patricia Alborough

On Monday 12th August, seven students in the Waverley College Sustainability group attended a Leadership Expo at Taronga Zoo. The expo allowed students from across NSW to share what projects were running at their schools and provide each other new ideas and initiatives to bring back to their school.

“It was great listening to what other schools were doing to make their school a more sustainable environment for students and teachers. Throughout the day many new initiatives were introduced, some ideas included how to launch Return and Earn at the school and building a native bee farm where we can harvest honey as well as have more pollinated flowers” – Ullhas Dey (11).

As a result of this expo the Sustainability Group will sit down and decide on one idea to teach 100 primary school students, including 10 Waterford students in September at Sydney Observatory Hill.
