WWF(World Wildlife Fund) is inviting Australians to walk, bounce or hop back into the wildlife spirit this June, with the much-anticipated return of Wild Onesie Week 2015. WWF is challenging Australians to head off to work and school and go about their day dressed head-to-toe as an animal during WILD ONESIE WEEK (which includes World Environment Day on June 5). MWPS Senior Environment Team is challenging our school to participate in this event by holding a WILD ONESIE DAY on FRIDAY 5TH JUNE. Students are asked to dress in a wild onesies or dress like an animal,. A GOLD COIN donation is requested. The funds raised will go towards our sponsored animals (which include koalas, a bilby, an orang-utan, a Tasmanian devil and a now critically endangered Leadbeater’s possum.) See our sponsored animals page on the Sustainability Blog http://sustainabilityatmwps.global2.vic.edu.au/our-animals/ for more details of our animals.
