Newham Primary School Students, winners of the Woolworths Junior Landcare Award

Newham Primary School, VIC

With just 140 students and eight staff, Newham Primary School is achieving great results with its environmental and sustainability programs. Students have planted indigenous vegetation along a tributary of Deep Creek that abuts the school, creating a nature corridor for local wildlife that connects with the Cobaw Biolink. They’ve also designed and built a wetland to provide an alternative breeding ground for frogs which 10 southern brown tree frogs now call home.
