With the release of Laudato Si' in 2015, CEDoW's system of schools has been on a path of encouraging strategic planning and implementation of sustainable practices, ecological action and formation for our schools.
As part of CEDoW's commitment to encourage and support schools in their ecological conversion journey, schools have had the opportunity to apply for an Environmental Education Grant for the past three years.
In 2020 nine schools were awarded $2000 grants that supported various environmental projects and activities.
These schools and projects included:
St Paul's Albion Park - Waste Management System Revival
St Francis Edmondson Park - SFCC Waste Management Revamp
St Brigid's Gwynneville - Sub Pod Composting and Grow Beds
Ss Peter and Paul Kiama - Rub Up On Rubbish: Management and Education
Magdalene Narellan - Wellbeing Labyrinth and Reflection Garden
St Paul's Moss Vale - Ethical Choices Can Make a Difference: Hand Dryer
St John's Nowra - Outdoor Classroom
St Pius X Unanderra - Creating Sustainable Green Thumbs: The Meezs Garden
St Francis of Assisi Warrawong - Waste Management and Sustainable School Garden
Please follow the link to read more details about each school's project for 2020.
Ten grants of up to $2,000 each will be available in 2021 and schools were invited to apply through the application process by Friday 11 December 2020.
