OUR NEW SENSORY PLAY SPACE
DAREBIN OCTOPUS SCHOOL
Reservoir Views is proud to be a City of Darebin Octopus Active Travel school for.
The program aims to create a safe school precinct that encourages students and families to choose active modes of transport such as walking, cycling and scooting.
As the successful applicant for this program, we have received over $150,000 investment in our school precinct. This includes a brand new bike shed, a fleet of bikes to use with our Bike Education program and the creation of active travel paths within our community.
Reservoir Views has successfully applied for a free subscription to join the ClimateClever Schools Program to empower our students around climate action and lower our carbon footprint and utility bills.
The App-based program enables schools, homes and soon businesses to measure, compare and reduce their consumption, costs and carbon footprint from energy, water and waste. Users can audit their homes/buildings to help them better understand their carbon footprint, and where they can reduce based on their appliances and usage. They can also analyse and compare their appliances with other users. The App provides tips and recommendations for actions from no-cost, behaviour changes to appliance upgrades. Users can manage their action plans online through the platform.
This is a really exciting opportunity for us as a school and has been completely driven by student passion and commitment. I will send out more information about this program next term including how families can be involved, a key element will be establishing a Climate Clever Committee.
