Built, natural, equipment & technology.
We work to improve the natural or built environments that support the THS Community.
We provide environment community services to support the natural & built improvement and preservation plans.
Master (Coordination) Plans
The THS Community environment is primarily managed using two key master (coordination) plans:
A learner driven approach to sustainability relating to THS environment; energy (raw or embedded in products) consumption & waste.

The architectural history of THS
"Innovations in school master planning took place within the NSW Government Architect’s Office c.1962-5, with Michael Dysart’s doughnut shaped classroom blocks grouped around a large central space, an acknowledgement not of progressive pedagogy as such but that the external environment of the school might shift the emphasis from the classroom interior, hence spaces such as courtyards, niches and open ‘squares’ as places of learning and socialisation."
Environment Support Group (ESG)(P&C Sub-committee)
The environment support group (ESG) is an oversight committee that sets policy in conjunction with the student-leadership group, the THS Executive and the P&C general manager responsible for the day to day enviroment services.
The ESG is made up of five(5) P&C members, two Student Leadership Group students, and by default the P&C President (or rep.) and the Principal (or rep.) .
There are two roles that need to be filled by the P&C members, which are the coordinator (convenor) & minute-taker.
The ESG meets once a term for an hour.
The roles are filled at the AGM or through out the year if required.
