Participating schools included St. Francis of Assisi, Rutherglen Primary School, Grace Christian College, Mt. Beauty Primary School and the Home Schooling Group. They learnt about Filtering Water, Closing the Loop, Energy, Water Bugs, Natural Disasters, planting, making eco-bricks, fast fashion and fancy phones, the web of life, biodiversity in our national parks and at our schools.
The day practiced being waste wise through having a rubbish-free lunch and, water wise through bringing refillable water bottles and refilling them at the NE Water’s portable refill station. The students also participated in a swap shop during lunchtime – giving toys, books and clothing they no longer wanted, another life and therefore keeping them out of landfill.
