World Enviornment Day
Congratulations to PCC for a wonderful World Environment Day which celebrated marine and freshwater habitats and created awareness of ways to take action against plastic pollution.
Students across the college were immersed in a range of learning experiences related to beating plastic pollution from writing a rap song in Performing Arts to creating a plastic free party. Students learnt that all the drains in our school ground empty into our wetlands and discussed the animals being affected by plastic pollution.
Our wonderful student environmental leaders provided workshops for younger students at snack and lunch to create plastic plarn made from our Subway bags. The plarn will go towards students crocheting sleeping mats for the homeless which will be donated to One Voice.
Thank you to all who were able to come out of uniform in blue or as their favourite marine animal to raise money for NatureWest who support Biodiversity in the local Point Cook region (naturewest.org.au). There were some fabulous costumes and sea creatures out in the school yard. Colleen Miller from NatureWest presented our school with a certificate of thanks for our hard work to raise awareness of important environment issues.
In Environmental Science students wrote letters of love to their favourite marine or freshwater animal which were read by Ms Cairns to the sea at Altona beach that night. Below a lovely letter from Siri in year 2 to a seahorse:
I love the beautiful and colourful patterns on your body and the way you swim up, down and side to side. I know how kind and graceful you are. Please don’t be shy because some of us are trying to save you from the plastic rubbish.
