Osborne Primary School places great importance on sustainable processes within our school and the local community. We have a number of programs to ensure the longetivity of our environment, buildings and eco systems. We respect the land of the Bunurong people of generations past and endeavour to keep our grounds conducive to high quality teaching and learning.
Osborne Primary School is a Resource Smart School and undertakes initiatives to improve our environmental performance in the areas of planning, energy, biodiversity, waste and water.
To support this initiative the school undertakes the following environmental initiatives.
Each class collects paper waste for recycling.
Classes collect fruit and vegetable waste for composting and to feed the worms in our worm farms.
As a part of the RED project (Recycling + Education=the Difference) we are collecting soft plastic (such as plastic bags, glad wrap, freezer bags and bread bags) for recycling.

Environment News November 2015 – Walk to School
It has been fantastic to see so many students walking, riding and scooting to school throughout October for Walk to School month. Each classroom had a chart to record student walking habits throughout the month. After tallying all the ticks on the charts we found that 6822 trips were made to or from school by active transport.
The aim of Walk to School is to encourage students to build habits of walking to school regularly. So keep the car at home and make the most of this beautiful spring weather by walking to school everyday!
