Sustainability At Comet Bay Primary School.
Comet Bay engages in many environmental and sustainability programs. These include being a Waterwise and Wastewise school, participating in the Containers for Change scheme and being one of ten schools in the state chosen to be part of the Virtual Power Plant for Schools program (partnership with Synergy and the Education Department).
Our sustainability focus has seen the installation of 350 solar panels on our buildings with a monitoring system installed to educate our students and community in sustainable practices.
At Comet Bay we have impressive produce gardens and a kitchen program, where our children discover how fruit and vegetables are grown, harvested, cooked and best of all, eaten! Students are often seen caring for our chooks or our fish in the aquaponics area.
Environmental Ambassadors are selected from Yr 5 & 6 to lead these initiatives and co-ordinate a different sustainability challenge for classes each term.
