Staff Achievement

College Achievement – Energy Consumption reduced by 10%

Hi everyone,

Your friendly neighbourhood Sustainability Officer here with an exciting energy update …

So far this year, we have reduced our energy consumption by 10%!

This may sound small, but it’s a massive achievement. To put it into perspective, we’ve saved 18, 867 kWh, enough to power three typical 4-person houses in Ainslie for a year.

Thank you to everyone who has been Flicking the Switch and encouraging their students to do so. Your combined efforts have produced a real, tangible change – so well done

This morning, Friday 1 June, College staff and students celebrated the Feast Day of Saint Angela Merici.  The celebratory activities commenced in Pastoral Care with students gifting a ‘bracelet of joy’ to another student in their PC group, which included a ‘JOY’ charm, embracing our #YearofYouth #SpredingJoy theme for the year. Students remembered St Angela as an educator of women from all classes of society.
