Newham Primary School is committed to the ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic initiative, which helps schools achieve environmental and financial benefits by embedding sustainability in everything they do. Our school has initiatives and infrastructure to save energy, reduce waste, conserve water and promote biodiversity.

"This 5 Star school inspires sustainability and is always keen to support others in their sustainability work.

In 2023 the school participated in and hosted teacher network meetings and contributed to developing the Department of Education’s Environmental Sustainability in Schools Policy.

By joining the Container Deposit Scheme and implementing a smart bin system, the community has reduced the amount of landfill it creates.

The campus wetland and biodiversity outdoor learning area are the cherries on top of this small but powerful school of 53 motivated students." - ResourceSmart Schools Awards 2024
