Project Brentwoods – completed!
Brentwood Secondary College is actively involved in taking action to address climate change by switching to renewable energy, recycling and tree planting. Project Brentwoods, a prestigious campaign launched in 2020, aims to plant 600 trees (mostly eucalypts such as narrow-leaf peppermint, manna and stingy bark) in the Mornington Peninsula to offset nearly 161 tons of emissions and provide a bio-link by restoring the habitats for koalas.
Year 12 Tree Planting
The Brentwood Green Team utilised the good weather during the past few weeks to plant natives and fruit bearing trees on the college grounds and in the Green Space.
Term Tree at Brentwood
This year’s World Environment Day’s theme is ‘Ecosystem Restoration’. Brentwood has joined the Generation Restoration and pledged to plant 2700 trees in Term 3 along the Scotchmans Creek and in the Mornington Peninsula. We are partnering with the 'Friends of Scotchmans Creek & Valley Reserve' and 15 Trees to implement this initiative. The following poster created by Anais (Year 7) was posted to our house teams.
Tree planting is going to offset nearly 73 tons of our greenhouse gas emissions.
Scotchmans Creek Tree Planting
Term Tree kicked off to a wonderful start today (13 July 2021). With guidance from the Friends of Scotchmans Creek & Valley Reserve (FOSCVR) and the City of Monash, the Brentwood Green Team planted over 1400 natives along the Scotchmans Creek.
The natives will prevent the erosion of the banks of the creek and provide habitat for the fauna along the creek.
