EARTH HOUR

What is Earth Hour?

Earth Hour was founded by WWF in Sydney in 2007 and has now been embraced by 7001 cities and 152 nations across the globe. And in 2014, Earth Hour will focus attention on one of the world’s most iconic and threatened places: Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

As always, Earth Hour only works if you’re part of it. So WWF is launching a special Earth Hour television event with Channel Ten to reveal the true story of what’s happening to the Great Barrier Reef due to climate change and more. Then they’ll turn out the lights to make a stand for the Great Barrier Reef.

On Saturday 29th March, Earth Hour supporters will get together at small and large gatherings around the country. They’ll tune in to the must-see TV special, before turning out the lights to remind the world that it’s lights out for the Great Barrier Reef, if we don’t stand up to protect it.

The organisers of the fifty best – most original, inspiring, impressive or unique Earth Hour gatherings – will then win a ticket to Camp Earth Hour on the Great Barrier Reef.

How will you celebrate Earth Hour in 2014?

There are many ways to get involved, from spreading the word or holding your own Earth Hour event, to making Earth Hour part of your everyday life at home and at work. You also get your own Earth Hour page which allows you to see the direct effect that you are having when you invite friends and family to get involved too. Go to http://earthhour.org.au/about/ to find out more and register.

The planet can supply for our need, but not for our greed. It’s Our Choice!

CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA DAY 2014

IMG_4275CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA DAY 2014

On Friday 28th February the school helped out with Clean Up Australia Day. The whole school gathered a total amount of 13 kg of rubbish. Next year let’s try to reduce our rubbish in the school yard; simply by picking up rubbish when found on the ground and making sure that EVERY DAY is a rubbish free lunch day.

Thank you to everyone who contributed on the day.
