Our Community and Environmental Pledges for 2023
Starting in March 2023, we will be introducing an e-Waste initiative to the valley. We will bring together different schools across our communities to collect and sell e-Waste.
Over the course of 2023 we pledge to assist the City of Cape Town to clean, repair and maintain the Sun Valley park in our community. We believe that citizenship begins at home!
The SRC of 2022 raised funds and pruchased recycling bins for the SMA campus. During 2023 we pledge to continue the practice of Recycling at Silvermine Academy.
Our Community and Environmental Pledges for 2022
Support owl conservation
In support of our logo's inspiration we pledge to donate R10 of every branded item sold to owl conservation. We have also adopted an Owl for it's rehabilitation period.
Plant every tree we print
We pledge to plant a tree for every tree we print. Using a special calculator we are able to get an accurate number of trees we owe. We will then propagate that number of indigenous trees and plant them in the area.
As of 2022 we will be going Grid-lite. This means that 2/3 of our electricity will be generated by solar panels around the school. Combined with inverters and batteries we will have a stable power supply even during load shedding.
