Enviroweek 2015

Kingston Heath is joining Enviroweek, a national schools’ event celebrating our positive everyday impact for our school community. From now to September we will be joining in by taking action and creating our online profile to share ideas with other schools and watch our collective impact grow across Australia.  We are doing simple actions like being ‘Sparky’ by switching off appliances, especially lights. Enviroweek learning will be incorporated into numeracy and literacy as well as a range of activities connecting students with nature, improving health and classroom learning through time spent outdoors.

During Enviroweek, August 30 – September 5, we will celebrate as a community and ask to join us.

If you are interested in bike riding, making your home more sustainable or both, then you may be interested in the message below from Malcolm Dow and the Glen Eira Bicycle Users Group.



Dear friends of GEBUG,

We would like to invite you to a bike ride on Sunday 13th September. It will be an Eco-friendly ride down the Rosstown Rail Trail, followed by coffee in Elsternwick, then to a tour of a “Sustainable House” showing how a house can easily be made into a low energy house. (Please see attached flyer for more details about the house tour).

The ride starts at Galbally Park, Murrumbeena, at 10am and will be a total of about 20km – older kids confident with road riding welcome.

We would love for you and any of your friends to join us.

The Rosstown Rail trail extends from Oakleigh to Elsternwick and has fantastic potential as a kid/new cyclists friendly cycling route that links to may schools. Come and find out where it goes and consider its future possibilities.

Please let me know if you would like to come or if you need any more details about the ride.
