"A journey towards full sustainability in the holistic spirit of integral ecology." Laudato Si' Action Platform​

​Our vision ​is to educate, inform and empower students and our entire College community to recognise that each of us have a moral responsibility (both personally and collectively) to care for creation and for each other. This responsibility to care for all creation drives us to action through knowledge and respect for the environment around us. Our commitment to sustainable practices is enriched by our understanding of integral ecology. 

Sophia College is actively working towards inter-generational equality, ensuring future generations benefit from our efforts in engaging with sustainable practices such as:​

  • Recycling plastic bottles and cans.
  • Collection of plastic lids of bottles for recycling.
  • Soft plastics recycling bins in the staff room, and the yard to reduce soft plastics going to landfill.
  • Battery and e-waste recycling in the staff room.
  • White board marker refilling station in the staff room.
  • Move towards eco-friendly compostable Bio Cups at college wide events​.
  • Embedding the cross-curriculum priority of sustainability in the Australian Curriculum into the school’s curriculum​.
