In October 2016, Caroline Chisholm Catholic College (CCCC) signed up to the So-Eco Kick-Start Program,
supported by Danihers Facility Management; with the aim of developing a long term embedded sustainability
program across campus, curriculum, community and culture. To maintain this program and ensure its success, a whole school approach has been initiated, in particular:
o Endorsement and support at leadership level, in particular by the Principal, and Deputy Principal
o Appointment of a Sustainability Coordinator at each of the two sites, to lead the program
o The creation of a Sustainability Action Team consisting of staff and students to support the Sustainability
Coordinators with program development and implementation.
The Kick-Start Program will be completed at the end of May 2017 and will enable the school to benefit from the
o Understanding current sustainability practices
o Identification of cost savings across waste
o Engagement with the program across the whole school community
o Development of student leadership opportunities
o Delivery of a platform for embedding a long term Sustainability Program
Findings and recommendations from the waste stream assessment will provide the school with a soild foundation and direction as they navigate their way to a 5 star school.
