Safa Community School has officially become a member of The Alliance for Sustainable Schools (TASS). This partnership reflects our deep commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable practices. By joining this alliance, we’re opening new doors for our school community to learn, grow, and actively contribute to a more eco-conscious world. Together with other like-minded schools and organisations, we’ll be working on exciting projects and initiatives aimed at creating a greener and healthier future.
TASS is a dynamic network of schools working hand in hand to tackle sustainable challenges in four crucial areas: school uniforms, school buses, school food and school buildings. Through TASS, SCS will have access to valuable resources, training, and collaborative opportunities that will empower our school community to become leaders in sustainability. We’ll work alongside other like-minded schools to develop innovative projects, implement eco-friendly practices, and engage our students in meaningful environmental education. Stay tuned for more updates on how we’re making a positive impact on our planet through our journey with The Alliance of Sustainable Schools.
