Enviroment the big winner with Rubbish Bingo

STUDENT voice made a real difference to the level of engagement of all students at St Mary's Primary School Grafton as they took part in their registered Clean Up Australia Day activities.

Rubbish Bingo, an idea put forward by the senior students, encouraged enthusiastic group work as students combed the environment in search of the various types of litter to mark off their bingo sheet.

The Environmental Leaders from our school sorted the 'finds' into recyclable items and rubbish.

Mr Matthew Green, the coordinator, provided information to the Clean Up Australia site and gave feedback at the school assembly.

He was delighted to announce that the results showed pride in our school community.

The efforts made by all indicate that we are learning how to make a positive difference to our environment.
