Congratulations…. to us!!
Coolbinia Primary School won two education awards at the United Nations World Teachers Day ceremony at Government House Ballroom last week.
The first award was the World Teachers’ Day Award for Global Citizenship Education. It recognised all teaching staff for integrating the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as well as human rights, unity in diversity and peace education into their programs.
The second award was for the Sustainability Challenge. Again the whole school was recognised for outstanding work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through Biodiversity, Wastewise, Waterwise, EnergySmart and other environmental and social actions at school, within the state, nationally and internationally.
Its a huge achievement for our school and a huge honour to be recognised by such a prestigious organisation.
Some of our staff went along to the ceremony…
Two videos were made in support of our nomination and will be on the website soon…
