Since opening in 2017, Tulliallan Primary School has worked in a close partnership with CERES to ensure sustainability is at the forefront of the schools mind. Today, it is more important than ever for educational organizations to recognize the value of providing students with education on sustainability.
At Tulliallan we see this as an opportunity to give the next generation all the skills and knowledge necessary to handle the social and environmental changes that will occur in the near future. Students are encouraged to gain an understanding of the dependence between humans and the environment where they live. Through sustainability education we aim to provide students with opportunities to learn about environmental issues and solutions that are mutually beneficial to both humans and the natural ecosystem.
Sustainability education at Tulliallan is fun, hands-on, engaging and empowering for students. It allows them to take responsibility for their actions and to contribute their vision for a sustainable future. It enables them to develop knowledge, skills, values and motivations for action, allowing them to maintain their own wellbeing – and that of their community and the planet – in an increasingly interconnected world.
“My goal is to help and save the ocean so future generations can learn about it and appreciate it too.”
“Sustainability is the way to a better life.”
“I want to help the environment and make changes, because we are the only ones who can save this earth.”
“I am on the Green Team because I want to make Tulliallan a greener and more sustainable school, in order to help the animals and environment.”
“I really want to look after the plants; I want others to see how many people want to help our earth.”
We can reduce packaging by bringing Nude Food to school!
Nude food is essentially food without packaging. This reduces the amount of material that needs to go in landfill bins.
Durable, reusable containers are a great way to bring food, as they provide long-term cost savings and environmental benefits (don’t forget to label your containers though!)
