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
