​About the Program

The Craigslea Environmental Club (CEC) first began in 2019, offering students who are passionate about the environment, the opportunity to give back to their community and make a positive impact. The CEC aims to implement initiatives each year that help the school in working towards becoming more sustainable and environmentally friendly. The program is coordinated by Miss Katherine Puckridge.


Highlights of the Program

Each year two students are elected to represent Craigslea SHS in the Brisbane City Council's Lord Mayor’s Young Environmental Leadership Network (LMYELN). These then receive the opportunity to carry out and lead the program while networking with students from other high schools within the region.

In 2019, CEC launched the 'Containers for Change' initiative that aimed to reduce landfill and raise funds for environmental resources and charities. This initiative received great momentum from the school community and has helped improve the school's recycling processes.

In 2020, CEC investigated environmentally sustainable alternative packaging for the Canteen. Students worked with the Canteen staff and the Craigslea SHS P&C to develop their ideas. This inspired many positive changes within the Canteen, including adapting more sustainable food packaging. The CEC is looking forward to continuing to work alongside the Canteen and Craigslea SHS P&C in 2021.
