Clean Up Australia Day

7/03/2017
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 packaging.
Deputy 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.’
