Environmental Engagement 2017

Given the dire water crisis this year the key activities of this year were focused on raising awareness around the crisis and efficient water use  The focus in third term was on transformative environmental thinking particularly water-saving awareness. The Hall Activism Rep took an active stance in spreading awareness about the water crisis by designing posters for the residences in the hall and encouraging students to do their part towards saving water.

The Drostdy Hall committee and house committees attended a water talk during mid-year leadership refresher training. This talk sparked some practical tips leadership students could share and encourage with their respective houses to save water. 

Drostdy Hall participated in the Green Fun Run.  Prince Alfred House started a veg garden this year.  Each residence had their own initiatives throughout the year, such as rain water tank testing, celebrating earth hour, etc.
