Team Green, MAC’s environmental group, is a student-led extracurricular initiative facilitated by members of our staff. The group meets each week to design and lead sustainability projects in our school and community, including organising events such Active Transport Day, developing composting and waste management solutions for our school, clean-up days, climate strikes, beeswax workshops, apple drives, and running competitions and challenges to raise awareness of sustainable practices. The group also volunteers at community events run by organisations such as WAI Wānaka, the WAO Summit, Wānaka Wastebusters and the community gardens and library.

A recognised Enviroschool

Mount Aspiring College is a recognised Enviroschool. Enviroschools is a nationwide programme supported by Toimata Foundation, founding partner Te Mauri Tau, and a large network of regional partners. Early childhood centres and schools commit to a long-term sustainability journey, where students connect with and explore the environment, then plan, design and take action in their local places in collaboration with their communities.

Sustainability corner

The ‘Sustainability Corner’ is a blog created by our Team Green students where they share posts about what the team’s been up to, some cool facts, and lots more!
