Green Team

School Environment Leadership established through students is instituted in the school through the WNPS Green Team initiative. This is an active operating student group. These students are involved in planning and managing energy activities and programs.

Second Life

Second Life is a program that the school has been involved with for the past few years. Second Life is a way for us to clear out our wardrobes of unwanted clothes, shoes and accessories and help charities and the environment at the same time. A company called 'Southern Cross Recycling' comes to our school to collect all our unwanted clothes and shoes and takes them to their factory. All the items are sorted and sent to various charities to sell in their shops, and also overseas to help needy people.
