In 2008 the Corinda School community identified Environmental Sustainability as a strategic priority.  The aim was to become the first school in Queensland to achieve Carbon Neutral accreditation.  In 2018 the school finally achieved its goal and was not only the first school in Queensland to achieve this, but is the only Climate Active certified secondary school in Australia (formerly known as the National Carbon Offset Standard – NCOS).  This is not a one-time goal, there is a greater strategy. 

The title “Are We There Yet?” describes the journey towards Carbon Neutrality – as with any innovation “you will never arrive” if a school is fully committed to continuous improvement.  It simply inspires new learning.

At this workshop staff will be sharing the Carbon Neutral journey and conducting a tour of the school’s Agricultural farm demonstrating smart farming initiatives and how this is used across the curriculum.  Come and enjoy the Farm in the City and the rich learning environment this presents!

The narrative around Carbon Neutrality and Smart Farming and how they interact will be presented by Deputy Principal of Innovation and Technology Tom Bates.
