Environmental Initiatives

Trinity College takes seriously the need to look after our land, the environment and the habitat around our school grounds and further afield.

Trinity College Gladstone is home to a variety of wildlife as diverse as green tree frogs and wallabies.

We have a number of environmental initiatives in place around Trinity College:

  • Two large banks of Solar panels (PV panels). These panels, located on the Da Vinci Building and Gladstone Baptist Church building, are designed to power our entire school site when there is full sun. While we do not run at 100% renewable power, we do come close at times.
  • Recycling initiatives. Our Student Council have commenced two important initiatives for recycling at Trinity College:
    • Bottle and can recycling – with funds received from the Containers for Change scheme going back into the Student Council account.
    • Paper and cardboard recycling – a new initiative, student council have launched a recycling scheme to ensure paper and cardboard are recycled rather than turned into landfill.
  • Composting and a pilot worm farm.Both an initiative of our gardening club, we benefit the gardens around the College with school-made compost and fertiliser.
