As well as incorporating sustainability across the curriculum the following initiatives have been introduced at Durack School which involve students across the school:

  • Recycling program for plastics, paper and mobile phones.
  • School Garden maintained by students
  • Toad Busts (Cane toads) every term
  • Collection of cans for a container deposit scheme (to be introduced shortly)
  • Participation in National initiatives such as: Walk Safely to School Day, Nude Food Day and Clean Up Australia Day
  • Monitoring of water and electricity usage.
  • Focus on energy and water saving strategies eg water saving taps, sensor lights
