Schools Challenge


Ways to earn points

Earn points by doing activities that relate to Tamworth Regional Council’s sustainability goals. Remember to record your activities in your reward sheet. There are three main ways to earn points for your school:

1. Create your own activity

You have the freedom to create your own activity that aligns with at least one of the region’s sustainability goals such as reducing water usage to 150ML per day. These could be big or small, trips, programs, and things you or your class is already doing.

2. Use the activity menu

We’ve gathered all types of sustainability activities into one place for you to easily find the resources you need to get started earning points.

3. Mini Challenges

Throughout the year Tamworth Regional Council focusses on different sustainability initiatives. Each term a different sustainability goal will be featured with mini-challenges aligned. You must be signed up for Sonny’s Sustainability Schools challenge to participate. There will be end of term and yearly winners that will receive recognition.

Record your points

Once you have completed an activity, pop it into your rewards chart. Once your chart, or your classes chart is full, take a photo and upload it here for review. Each chart that is loaded will earn points for your school. Be sure you are signed up for Sonny’s Sustainability School Challenge otherwise, we may not be able to process your submissions. Please make ONE submission for each activity. If you did an activity more than once (e.g. with different students or reoccurring events), submit each occurrence individually to earn extra points.
