Clean Up Australia Day 2016 at Boronia Heights Primary School.
It is important that we all help to keep our environment clean and tidy, so last Friday – March 4th, we participated in Clean Up Australia Day. The Year 6 Environmental Leaders: Maya, Vaughn, Danielle and William helped to organise this event at our school. They distributed clean up bags and maps showing areas designated areas for each year level. At the end of the day the Environmental Leaders judged the tidiest area. Certificates were awarded to the Year 4 students for their hard work.
Thanks to all the staff and students for helping to keep our school tidy.
Did you know…..
…..Clean Up Australia Day was inspired by builder and solo yachtsman Ian Kiernan. On a solo world voyage he was disgusted by the amount of pollution in the seas. He vowed to do something about it by cleaning up his ‘own backyard’, Sydney Harbour. The rest, as they say, is history…!
