MCC Sustainability Strengths, the Focus of Business StudentsPosted in Sustainability,Whole College on Wednesday, 29 May, 2019

Mrs Anjulee May’s Year 10 Business class have been learning business environmental practices and were lucky enough to have access to a business who is prioritising sustainability – Mandurah Catholic College of course! Mr Cameron Leishman and Mr Towhid Jamal from MCC IT Support went into their classroom to share their engaging and inspirational knowledge about the College sustainability initiatives.

The initiatives include the use of solar power, the switch to duplex (double-sided) printing to save paper and the new College water tank. Mrs May said, “Mr Leishamn and Mr Jamal’s visit was truly valuable in developing the students’ understanding of business environmental practices (and their own part in it!).”

Below are some messages from the Year 10 students to thank Mr Leishman and Mr Jamal for their insights:
