We will increase the school's biodiversity by planting indigenous plants and we will have a nude food day to reduce our waste.
We had a nude food day on the Friday and so the school canteen used washable crockery and cutlery and students used reusable sandwich containers. The primaries reduced their waste by 75% for the day.
The year 7 and 8 students planted 100 indigenous plants in our wildlife corridor that we are creating.
We highlighted how much carbon dioxide we saved and how much electricity we generated with our solar panels.
Period 5 on Friday the last day of term, we had an Environmental Treasure Hunt for the whole school - p to year 11. (Year 12 students were studying.) The students formed smal groups and had to answer questions; e.g. What percentage of Australian mammals are endemic? (not found anywhere else in the world) <ol> <li>25% ii. 50% iii. 75% iv. 80%</li> </ol> Find objects; <ol> <li>Where is our solar hot water system?</li> </ol> Collect things; Find 5 different shaped leaves and do things; Take a photo of your group picking up litter and putting it in the bin. Prizes were given out to all and the students had great fun.
