Randwick Public School

Sustainability and minimising our environmental footprint are the main priorities at Randwick  and are embedded throughout life at school. Students are taught the knowledge and skills required for living a sustainable lifestyle.


Each classroom contains a compost, plastics and paper bin. Students place their fruit scraps, tissues and pencil sharpenings in the compost bin. This is then used to fertilise the soil in the kitchen garden. Hard plastics, recyclable packaging and aluminium foil is placed in the yellow bin and recycled by Randwick City Council.


The Ecomaniacs lead and promote whole school sustainability initiatives. This group of dedicated Year 6 students meet every week to research and discuss current environmental issues. They use digital technology to create promotional material for use throughout the school, conduct audits and give presentations. The Ecomaniacs play a pivotal role in the implementation and maintenance of whole school sustainability initiatives and help to identify our next steps in leading sustainable lives.

Staff and Community Links

At Randwick, the staff aim to be leaders in sustainability. Teachers attend Eastern Suburbs Sustainability Network Meetings with neighbouring Local Councils (Woollahra, Waverley and Randwick) as well as other schools in the local area and undergo professional development to ensure our teaching, learning and initiatives are current and relevant. We take a collaborative approach to teaching and learning and draw on the knowledge and skills of all staff members.
