ResourceSmart Schools is a free program offered by Sustainability Victoria that supports Victorian schools to embed sustainability across the school facilities, community and curriculum, while saving resources and money for the school.

In 2017, St Louis de Montfort’s Primary school won school of the decade for embedding sustainability into its school curriculum and educating the wider community on sustainability practices.

Highlights of St Louis de Montfort’s Primary sustainability efforts include building a kitchen out of converted shipping containers, creating an amphitheatre out of re-used tyres and sleepers, installing orchards, garden beds and composting, and having waste and energy warriors in each class.
