    Abstract

    Since 1995 the school education sector has been a dominant focus for education for sustainability (EfS) in Australia (Tilbury, Coleman, & Garlick, 2005, p. 1). The commencement of the Australian Sustainable Schools Initiative (AuSSI) in 2003, with its whole school approach, dramatically increased this focus (Department of Education and Training, 2005b). The pilot for the Western Australian Sustainable Schools Initiative (WA SSI) commenced in 2005 (Department of Education and Training, 2005b). A small independent school, located in the Perth metropolitan area, was one of the twenty schools that participated in the WA SSI pilot. This paper will report on one project that was conducted at this school as part of the WA SSI.
