SPCCC Junior Landcare Group started as a series of class initiated environmental tasks on our new 40 Hectare site to prepare students for the move toward the new property. With the help of local council, students were involved in Veg Watch and Water Watch Programs through a very passionate advocate for environmental sustainability issues, Amanda Gregory.

SPCC Junior Landcare has progressed rapidly to include researching Microbat colonies, creating new corridors for animals to utilise, creating vegetable gardens, and the reforestation and reclaiming of ancient forest areas. Many primary and secondary students have now been involved in a wide variety of environmental activities and an Environmental Science Student Committee has been launched to provide students with the opportunities to research and implement activities that bring whole school community awareness to environmental issues and solutions, the latest being the collection of used phones to save gorilla habitats through Taronga Zoo (Sydney).
