Eight students from Years 7, 9 and 10 were invited to participate in the inaugural Landcare Interactive day last Friday. This was a great day of inspiration for these environmentally-minded students.
The students had the chance to hear from a range of environmental experts and network with like-minded students from other schools in the area. We heard about the waste audit and changes to the rubbish collection system that Nowra Anglican College have made, and the way Bomaderry High School students are dealing with plastic pollution at local beaches.
The students also had a great time making their own Sugar Glider nest boxes and bees-wax wraps to take home. They are already thinking about how we can implement what they saw and learnt at our own school and I can't wait to see what they come up with!
"I thoroughly enjoyed my day at NAC on Friday, it was great to meet other students who were just as devoted to giving something back to our wonderful environment. The activities we took part in were a perfect way to communicate with pupils from a variety of schools and understand the vast number of ways to both save and preserve our currently endangered wildlife. Thank you Landcare Australia and NAC for providing such an inspiring experience." - Lizzie, Year 7
