Green Day

Green Day is a celebration we have every second year at St. Kevin’s. We participate in a range of games and activities to help us learn about how to be sustainable and protect our environment.

This year we had some guest speakers, Andrew from SWEP came to talk to us about the water we use at our school. We looked at graphs and compared our school to other schools. We could identify on average how much water each person uses per day. Sam spoke to us about waste management and shared tips for recycling at home and at school. We also heard from the Manningham Council about littering and the impact it has on our environment.

Some students from Templestowe College visited with some of their animals from their animal program. We had a great time holding snakes and patting lizards!

We also participated in some fun tabloid sports activities and had a crazy day pizza lunch.

Overall we had a lot of fun and enjoyed our focus on sustainability.
