2017 Water Warriors

Posted on 16 October 2017
On Friday 15 September some of our Year Fours went to the St Kilda Town Hall to participate in the Sustainable School's Festival Kids Teaching Kids workshops.

At these awards, St Columba's was awarded the 2017 Water Warrior of the Year award, in recognition of all of the teaching and learning we have done around water and the conservation of our waterways, and as a congratulation for obtaining two major water grants last year:
  • Port Phillip Bay Fund Community Grant we are designing a program/initiative called ""Operation STEAM Clean the Bay"", and have been given $76,765 in funding from the Port Phillip Bay Fund over three years
  • Coastcare Victoria Community Grant 2017 - we obtained a grant of $3,660 with a focus for St Columba's caring for our Coast.

What our parents & students say

"One of the many aspects I love about our school is that the teachers really know my children. Not just by name but them as an individual, any learning difficulties they may be having and their individual learning."
