We were very proud of Emily and Chris when they accepted the RMIT University Education Award at the Glenelg Hopkins CMA Environmental Achievement Awards on Wednesday night. This is the second time in the nine years of the awards that Hawkesdale College has been recognised for their outstanding achievements in education for sustainability. The school has identified criteria to assess those which are valuable educational opportunities, meeting student learning needs and curriculum requirements, as well as achieving good environmental outcomes. Successful community partnerships, passionate teachers, effective communication and long-term planning are all essential elements in the achievement of these environmental sustainability projects. The following examples are just some of the learning opportunities our students have participated in:

Youth Environment Conferences
Bush Food, Fibre and Medicine garden
Waterwise Garden
Permaculture Garden with fruit, vegetables and herbs
