CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA DAY
For the past 30 years, Clean Up Australia Day has highlighted the need to keep our country beautiful. This year over one million Australians donated their time to improving the environment by cleaning up!
We are proud of the achievements of our students at both campuses who stepped up once again to clean up our school environments.
Year 5 students did a brilliant job of cleaning the Primary Campus, picking up a total of 2099 pieces of rubbish. Even though we have daily waste warriors volunteer to clean up our school yard, and to most it does look clean, they did an incredible job of finding the hidden litter, often blown into tricky spots.
Following up from their clean up, they will be reporting back to our Sustainability Committee on the worst areas, most commonly found items, and solutions to the ongoing litter that we find.
At the Secondary Campus, seven classes volunteered their time by helping our Eco Squad clean up the whole campus. Though the group did not count the individual pieces of litter, they did fill up four large bags with rubbish. Another job very well done and appreciated!
The next step in this process is the promotion of having more ‘nude food’ lunches and using our ample recycle bins correctly.
Let’s take pride in a clean school environment and extend this attitude out into the wider community at all times.
