At Charters Towers we pride ourselves on our community connections. Our children actively participate in the community through various initiatives.
We have a community garden that provides fresh produce accessible to the community. Additionally, we have a street library to promote literacy and reading. We also have a community pantry which offers a range of ingredients for families to access if they need to.
We also have a sustainability garden where children learn to care for the environment. Here the children can learn and practice composting, gardening, recycling and tending to our worm farms.
