As a 3 Star ResourceSmart school, reducing waste is a daily focus for us at school, home and in the community. Nude Food is an important part of how we help to reduce plastic waste at school and to educate our students about how their actions can impact the environment and their health. We encourage students to bring a rubbish free lunch to school. Nude food is food that comes to school without disposable packaging – extra plastic bags, paper bags, wrappings, or cling wraps. It’s been fantastic to see that many students have continued to bring Nude Food this year. Our LGC ResourceSmart Leadership team will be organising some Nude Food activities later in Term 1 to encourage families to provide totally Nude Food lunch boxes everyday. Our famous wax wraps made last year by our students will also be available again at the Twilight Fair in April.
Sustainability at St Josephs
At St Joseph’s we inspire our students and our community to care for God’s world by conserving natural resources, through positive daily actions. We aim to provide practical environmental education in all aspects of school life and stimulate environmental consciousness for a sustainable future.
