Through her Year 6 sustainability inquiry, Erin Kotses was struck by a “big idea” to improve use of the raised garden beds at Findon Campus and develop an integrated garden-based program which will promote ecology, healthy eating attitudes, community engagement and social justice.
Tasked with researching and creating a practical way to ‘make a change’ and endorse sustainability in the school environment, Erin identified an opportunity to leverage the existing garden resources at Nazareth, and scale them into a project which will benefit students, families and the wider community alike.
Erin’s aspiration is to fill the raised beds with produce that can be sold year-round at a community market.
As part of our Student Leadership Program, a selection of student leaders and wellbeing enthusiasts attended the inaugural Future Well Summit at Lightsview.
Students at the Findon campus are proudly taking on the new role of supervised roadside safety guards as expertly trained School Crossing Monitors.
All students in Years 5 and 6 recently took part in School Crossing Monitor Training delivered by a member of the South Australia Police Road Safety Centre. This training is offered annually across the State to upper primary students, teachers and staff members who operate school crossing or pedestrian-activated traffic lights.

Flinders Park Campus teacher Mr Andrew McNicol recently offered his Year 7 Japanese classes a lesson he describes “has proven to establish very strong levels of student engagement, empathy, perspective, and gratitude.”
Zipping on their super suits and casual clothes (since not all heroes wear capes), students and staff at Nazareth Catholic College Flinders Park Campus joined the fight against congenital heart disease by taking part in the “Be a Hero for HeartKids” day last Friday 17 June.
Nazareth 7-12 students dressed as their favourite hero characters in exchange for donations which equated to $1,280 for children with congenital heart disease, which is a leading cause of infant death in Australia.
