Students Lead:

– Children in all year levels have sustainability leadership roles.

– Recycle paper, plastic containers, cans, cardboard and plastics to yellow bins.

– Reduction of waste, gas, electricity and paper.


A few reminders with the safety of our students in mind.

– At Newtown Primary School we do not share food. We have a number of students with allergies and it could put them at an unnecessary risk.

– Similarly, we are a Nut Free School and H2O only.

Please respect these expectations with the safety of all of our students in mind.
