Each year, since 2001, Hillside has honoured a school or staff member(s) with the Bruce Daly Environmental Award. This award was originally created to recognize and honour the contributions of Bruce Daly, a former principal, who believed strongly in environmentalism.
This award is given to a person or school who display leadership in promoting and encouraging environmental awareness and activism with the school community.
Some of the criteria for the award are:
- provide opportunities for students to experience the natural world outdoors
- display a willingness to foster links and positive environmental choices and
- to facilitate a sense of care for the school community.
