It was all
hands on deck as Landsborough State School participated in Clean Up Australia
Day on Friday 3rd March. Younger students focussed on cleaning up the school
grounds, whilst children in Years 5 and 6 ventured into the local community to
clean streets and parks.
It was an
excellent opportunity for them to learn about the kinds of rubbish found around
their school and town, and the effects it has on the natural environment.
Disappointingly, the materials found were mostly recyclable items such as: glass
& plastic bottles, aluminium cans, cardboard and paper. Other items found
in abundance in local streets were things like cigarette butts and food
Principal, Amanda Shone, explained ‘We are so proud that our students
contributed to a worthy cause to make our community a cleaner place. The aim is
that they will become more conscious of the impact of littering and continue to
clean up throughout the year.’
