This year we again participated in the annual Clean Up Australia Day. Students supported our community by
spending some time with their classes Friday March
1st cleaning up our school! We are proud to be
participating in line with schools all across Australia in this very important National Program.
Up Australia is a not for profit community based organisation founded by Ian
Kiernan AO in 1989 to inspire and work with communities to clean up, fix up and
conserve our environment. Clean Up Australia is dedicated to developing
sustainable solutions and addressing the critical issues that face us in the
areas of waste, degrading waterways and landscapes. It provides a practical
framework and support for all individuals to make a positive and effective
contribution to the health of our environment.
For 30 years Australians have joined
together to Clean Up Australia. During this time over 16 million Australians
have donated more than 33 million hours, removing the equivalent of 350,000
ute-loads of rubbish from more than 178 thousand locations across the country.
Since 1993 millions of people around the
globe have also heeded the call under the banner of Clean Up the World, the
global initiative the United Nations asked Kiernan to create and oversee. This
year-round campaign engages an estimated 35 million volunteers in 130 countries
annually, making it the largest community-based environmental campaign in the
