Sustainability

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

http://www.wwf.org.au/our_work/people_and_the_environment/human_footprint/footprint_calculator/

 

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. newportlakesps@edumail.vic.gov.au

 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to come and see me.

 

Terima kasih,

Twitter

Follow us @nlpstweets

 

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!

New Double Storey Relocatable for Newport Lakes PS

Click here to see a time-lapse video of the construction of our new building!


Double Storey Portable  Works on the new double storey portable have began. Safety fences around the perimeter of the work site have been erected. This fence will be in place until the completion of the project which is expected to be the second last week of term 3.

 

A further safety fence for a temporary roadway , leading from the worksite to the Elizabeth St. gateway, has also been erected. This roadway will allow for the safe movement of heavy vehicles (cement trucks, vehicles carrying modular buildings, etc) across the school grounds.  There will be gates in the fence to allow for access of staff and students when the roadway is not being used. The roadway fence will be in place for approximately 3 weeks or until all transportation of material has been completed.

 

Entry to the work site by builders, deliveries, inspectors, etc. will then be via the laneway off Ross St. for the remainder of the build.  As with any building works, there will be disruption to our normal daily activities. We are working very hard at keeping this disruption to a minimum in the shortest possible time.  There is no doubt that it will be difficult this term but with all going well , the Yr.3/4 children will be working in four wonderful  new classrooms at the beginning of term 4.
