Year 11 CERES Excursion

Wednesday, September 13, 2023

On Monday September 4, the Year 11 Personal Development Skills class went on an excursion to CERES in East Brunswick. CERES is a farm, nursery, bookstore, bakery, grocery, wood merchant and education centre focusing on sustainability.

The students participated in the Caring for Climate Program and explored a 100 Year old home that had been renovated to become more energy efficient. In keeping with the sustainability theme, students were asked to bring NUDE food, food without packaging and to ensure they left no rubbish behind. Students toured the unfinished Human Powered Classroom, which will eventually be run by students producing energy by riding bikes. The students toured the farm and nursery and were educated about fossil fuels and the importance of supporting our natural ecosystems.

The playground was made entirely of recycled materials and showed how clever people can be when they want to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. The purpose of the excursion was to support students in the development of their own Community Project that students are currently planning as part of the VM course.
