Territory Tidy Towns Award Night 2018

Parap Primary School was recently recognised at the 2018 Territory Tidy Towns Awards. We took out the 2018 NT Eco-School Clean Green Healthy School Award.

“Parap Primary School is a leading Northern Territory Eco-School and actively participates in the global school sustainability program. It’s a very beautiful school in harmony with its community and environmental surroundings, and the students, with the support of its Teachers, are extremely active towards global sustainability learning, teaching and practices,” Heimo Schober, Keep Australia Beautiful Council Northern Territory Chief Executive Officer.

Parap Primary School Students have tackled a range of sustainability initiatives including:
 Recycling of materials and packaging which includes supportive infrastructure such as bins and signage at classroom levels.
 Anti-litter signage throughout the school
 Solar energy in use
 The establishment of compost bins, worm farming, water-wise and water saving initiatives, school vegetable garden, and native tree planting.
 Display of local Indigenous culture to share and respect within the school grounds.
 Environmental innovation and sustainability through ‘Boomerang Bags’ for their local market stores and student research on plastic eating ‘Wax Worm.’
 Student Eco-Warriors Program – a very enthusiastic student leadership group, prioritising and guiding school’s sustainability and environmental projects throughout the year.
