Students clean-up Australia
TWEED primary schools yesterday braved the rain and wind to help clean up Australia.
Cudgen, Centaur and Burringbar public schools were all registered as part of the Schools Clean Up Day 2011.
Since 1992 Schools Clean Up Day has allowed school students to participate in Clean Up Australia as part of their school community.
Equipped with gloves and garbage bags, senior Centaur Public School students headed off to the sports field.
Centaur Going Green team member Misha Ivers said the students were encouraged to look at the day with a positive attitude.
“We encourage and support our students ‘going green’ through numerous activities and help them to learn to care for the environment as part of their everyday lives,” Ms Ivers said.
“The aim is to develop positive values and attitudes about themselves, others, the world they live in and their future.”
