The Senior Student Leadership Group meets fortnightly with the Senior Student Leadership Team Mentor, Principal and Yr 12 Manager at Portland Secondary College. The group targets projects that students have a passion for. Yr 12 Student Margy Doherty initiated a clean up of beach cast plastic at remote and logistically difficult Discovery Bay. Using social media she attracted around 24 volunteers, utilities and a waiving of fees at the Portland Transfer Station. The student project attracted media interest with the Portland Observer featuring an article. Further Portland Rotary Club have approached organisers about assisting future cleanup endeavours with minibus, BBQ options to in support of volunteers. Terrific to see students taking action against the damaging presence of plastic in waterways. We are very proud to achieve finalist listing for the ResourceSmart Schools Awards 2016.
