clean up your mess clean up oz

A message from our Environment Team Captains:

On Friday 28th February the school helped out with Clean Up Australia Day. The whole school gathered a total amount of 7.5 kg of rubbish. That is a 50% reduction of last year’s 13kg total. 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.

Working Bees are an opportunity for the community to give back to the school in helping to maintain and beautify the grounds. We are looking forward to greater community support in 2015 to ensure that our grounds can be effectively maintained without outsourcing to private contractors. Please come along to our next Working Bee  It will be a great opportunity to get to know the staff, students and families of the school, whilst performing an invaluable community service.
