Think Globally - Act Sustainably


​Think Globally - Act Sustainably

Cairns SDE is a Reef Guardian School and as such we would like to foster awareness of the importance of thinking globally whilst acting locally, to promote sustainability practices.

Protecting the Great Barrier Reef is part of Education Queensland's 2018-2022 Strategic Plan and sustainability is embedded as an ACARA Cross-curriculum priority.  The UN's Sustainable Development Goals (priorities to be reached by 2030) are part of the SATE curriculum - Science and Geography strands.

Our sustainability team would like to extend a very big thankyou to our school community who have jumped on board with the Cairns SDE P&C Containers for Change recycling collection commitment.  If you live in Queensland and would like to contribute, head to your local Drop-Off or Pop-Up Refund Points with eligible containers and provide them with the Cairns School of Distance Education's ID: C10025862.
