Congratulations to the following schools: Albany Primary School, Bull Creek Primary School, Carey Baptist College (Forrestdale), Chrysalis Montessori School, Manjimup Primary School, Marmion Primary School, Rostrata Primary School, Somerly Primary School, and Spencer Park Primary School.
Waste Wise Schools will be known as WasteSorted Schools from 2022, and is being revamped prior to the next funding round in February 2022.
