As part of a sustainability focus, Jarrahdale Primary has developed a program called Earth Aware. Every Tuesday morning the entire school participates in an Earth Aware session from 9.15–10.45am.
Students from Kindy to Year 6 are organised into 5 mixed age groups for sessions. Each of these groups is comprised of approximately 18 students and is named after a native animal from the local area such as a Quenda or Woylie.
The sessions run in 5-week blocks and cover waterwise, wastewise, cooking, gardening and technology.
The model has been very successful and the small class sizes and in-depth approach to each topic has also encouraged parents to stay and participate with the students.
