MWPS CONTINUES TO SUPPORT EARTH HOUR
Our Environmental Sustainability policy encourages all members of the school community to be active and responsible in their actions towards the global environment. The overarching theme of our whole school curriculum is: It’s Our Choice! In an effort to minimise our ecological footprint, MWPS has chosen to implement regular Earth Hours at school and asks the school community to support this event at home and even, if possible, at work.
This event has been created to take a stand against the greatest threat our planet has ever faced, Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming. All you need to do is turn off all of your lights for one hour. Easy!
We supported this program at school again on Friday, May 1st by switching off all of the lights in the school and any unnecessary electrical equipment in each classroom for one hour between 2.30 and 3.30pm. As the official Schools Earth Hour Day was on the last day of Term 1 it was decided that we would postpone it to tomorrow. Throughout the year, there will be many more Earth Hours celebrated in our school in an effort to make a difference and to making Earth Hour part of our everyday lives at school, home and at work.
Classes dedicated an hour to doing an activity that highlighted the necessity of giving the planet “a break” for one hour.
