IMG 9577Cannon Hill Anglican College is set in 11.5 hectares of gently sloping, wooded land, dominated by a series of giant eucalypts and an extensive Melaleuca Wetlands area, rich in wildlife. The Melaleuca Wetlands at CHAC is one of the key focus areas of the College, with both College staff and students. An integrated approach to curriculum is taken, with careful planning being implemented to ensure every student is given the opportunity to experience the wetlands environment, from Primary school through to Year 12.

The Wetlands Rehabilitation Project and clear commitment to protection of the environment stems from the unique privilege of the College being situated in such a unique natural environment, not only for teaching and learning, but to make a significant difference in energising and motivating people to implement positive environmental change.

The College is committed to ensuring the protection, conservation and future sustainability of its environment. In particular, the rehabilitation and ongoing maintenance of the wetlands precinct.

CHAC's Environment Committee is made up of committed students and staff who act as a vital link to encourage participation from all members of the College and wider community.

The Committee aims to promote environmental understanding and sustainability amongst all members of the College community; and to develop strategies to continue the rehabilitation and maintenance of the wetlands.

In addition to committee members, many other CHAC students regularly offer assistance at our various tree planting days, clean up days, recycling program and more.
