Clean up Australia Day

On Friday 01 March, Elli from Gympie Regional Council and Ivan from National Parks visited our school to participate in our Clean Up Australia Day. They discussed the effects of litter on our environment and the ways we can help minimise this litter. Elli carries around a bottle as big as a honey jar that carries her non-recyclable rubbish for one year. It is a great effort and blew our minds every time we saw it. After the discussion, the whole school participated in cleaning around our school. We were surprised by the amount of rubbish we collected and the unusual objects that made their way back to school, including a rusty car radiator. Some students made the connection that the rubbish being dumped maybe due to the fees at the Refuse Centre.
