Newport Lakes Primary is currently taking steps to become a more sustainable school. We are participating in a State Government initiative called ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic that endeavors to assist schools to embed sustainability in everything they do.
To begin our sustainability journey we are collecting data and information about our school population and environment. Our current focus is to investigate our ecological footprint. An ecological footprint, also known as carbon footprint
is a measure of human demand on Earth's ecosystems. It includes our food, energy use, waste and all other resources we use to live.
It would be a great help to our school if you could take the time to complete this ecological footprint questionnaire. It is available through the World Wildlife Fund website and will take around 10 minutes to complete.
For easy access to the website, go to
When you have completed the questionnaire you will be informed of how many Earths are required for your lifestyle. Please email this number and your child’s grade levelto the school with the subject “sustainability” by the end of Term Three. email@example.com
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to come and see me.

Newport Lakes is now on Twitter. Following the success of a number of schools, we are experimenting with using Twitter as a form of communication. So, if you already have Twitter, please follow us @nlpstweets. Just visit www.twitter.com
If you are interested in learning more about Twitter, there will be a short information evening held this term to explain what it is all about, and exactly how to use it. The date of this will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
Recently staff at NLPS undertook some professional learning about Twitter. We are in the early days of this ‘Twitter Journey’ so we all look forward to learning about it together.
Happy tweeting!...Read More
