2013 HabitAT School Award winners

Once again schools have responded to our annual HabitAT School Awards with a bunch of impressive entries. As always, schools were free to apply under one (or more) of three categories:

  • HabitAT Census
  • HabitAT Plan
  • HabitAT Action

In creating the HabitAT School Awards, the LfS team were keen to reward schools and students who discover the current habitat value of their grounds, plan well thought out projects to improve their neighbourhood for wildlife, and take action to make their plans a reality.

The LfS Team is convinced that all three of these stages are equally important – we imagine them forming a natural cycle of learning, experience and continuous improvement.

If we are committed to making a lasting impression on students, and a permanent improvement for local wildlife, our actions must be based on well researched plans, and our plans informed by the on-ground realities of our unique site.

The 2013 winners were:

Best HabitAT Census - Ferny Creek Primary School

Best HabitAT Plan - The Patch Primary School

Best HabitAT Action - Belgrave Heights Christian School

HabitAT Action – Highly Commended - Macclesfield Primary School

Congratulations to all staff, students and communities involved.
