Sustainability Programs

The AISM Sustainability Program was initiated to encourage our school community to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle - to conserve resources at AISM, reduce negative impacts on our planet, and ensure our students become environmentally aware global citizens.

Everyone is invited to get involved and make a difference. Students, teachers, parents, and support staff are encouraged to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. If every one of us takes action, our combined effort will amount to big change.

In the Junior School, ideas and projects are coordinated by students and staff in the JS Sustainability Committee, also known as the Sustainable Green Dragons.

In the Middle Senior School, ideas and projects are coordinated through the Student Representative Council (SRC), then teams of students form to put the ideas into action.

The main event for 2017 is Green Week from 5-9 June 2017. Our celebrations will begin with World Environment Day on Monday 5 June 2017.

2016 highlights:

  • 29 October 2016, six Middle and Senior School students met and discussed their sustainability projects with Dr Jane Goodall, world-famous scientist and environmental campaigner.
  • 10 June 2016, guest speaker Mr d’Arcy Lunn introduced students to the United Nations Global Goals and encouraged students to become responsible global citizens by making 'teaspoons of change' - the small actions of many people, multiplied, can amount to big change. 
  • Junior School students developed worm farms, compost systems and raised money through herb sales from their garden.
  • Middle Senior School students developed recycling campaigns.
  • Paper recycling baskets introduced into all classrooms
