Mary’s Mount Primary School Sustainable Events Guide

As MMPS is a Waste Wise school, we are always striving to be responsible users of the Earth’s resources and continue to improve and grow in our knowledge and actions to reduce our waste to landfill. One of the ways we can do this is by encouraging the minimisation of waste generated during community events. We have written a MMPS Sustainable Event Guide for our whole school community. The guide lists items we are attempting to avoid and then lists alternative suggestions.

This document was written with the sole intention to support and assist our school communities event working groups to make an better environmental choice of item when organising any school event. For example: Breakfast in the Park, P & F social functions, staff PD days held within the school grounds, community breakfasts, morning or afternoon teas, sacramental dinners, graduation events etc. Similar guides are being used by other schools leading the way in waste management.

Thank you and together we can make a difference.
