Environmental education, edible and native gardens                                                                 

In 2011 Fairhall was awarded an enviroschools green gold award for its environmental education programme.  Students are empowered to take sustainable action within the school and community.  They are actively involved in recycling, and the school has a wrapper free policy for lunchboxes. 

The junior school is responsible for planting, tending and enjoying the produce from the edible garden.

The native garden belongs to the students and, wherever possible, it is developed and maintained by them.  It supports native birdlife, is filled with sculptures created by school families and is often used by students during class and break times and for events such as the junior school poetry in the garden.
