Wodonga Student Environment Day & Milestone Celebrations 2016

On Thursday 11th August, the Wodonga Student Environment Day was held at the CUBE.  It was attended by around 140 students from Wodonga, Wodonga South and Talgarno Primary Schools and St. Francis of Asissi.  Once again these students were able to visit a number of presentations on the day to learn about Water Bugs, Water Issues, Native Seedlings, The Web of Life, Sustainable Homes, Fishing, Being Waste Wise, Waste Breakdown Timelines and Preparing for Natural Disasters.

August 11 marked some key milestones for the Student Environment Days (SED) facilitated by North East Waste & Resource Recovery Group in partnership with North East Catchment Management Authority.  SEED celebrated a number of milestones including its 5000th student and 200th school to attend a Student Environment Day and the 30th School Environment Day to be run by SEED.  Congratulations to Sienna Trenerry from Wodonga Primary School for being the lucky 5000th student and to St. Francis of Assisi for winning the school competition.  Congratulations also to Diane Doyle for having presented at all 30 of the Student Environment Days and for her contributions, dedication and leadership towards sustainability education.

As part of the celebrations, students were entertained by Woody’s World and the many visitors, including many SEED partners and past presenters had an afternoon tea and reflected upon the North East Victorian SEED project. A competition was held for North East school students who were asked to display what they liked about their sustainable school.  Results of this competition can be viewed here.

I would like to thank North East Water, Wirraminna Environment Education Centre, Halve Waste, SES, Landcare, DEWLP along with NECMA and NEWRRG and also senior students from St. Francis of Asissi, for their contributions in delivering some excellent learning opportunities to these local students.

The SED represents the culmination of so many organizations and councils working together to provide opportunities for schools and students to access experts in many fields of sustainability education.  All combine to provide a great educational experience for our local students.
