GET INVOLVED

 'GO GREEN DAY'

INITIATIVE

 

Go Green Day Initiative

The purpose of Go Green Day is to raise awareness regarding the amount of packaging and single-use plastics we all use on a daily basis. The GATE students were inspired to create this event after a waste audit we conducted in second term revealed that our Secondary school generates over 8 tonnes of landfill each year!

 

Held on the 12th of November, everyone (teachers and students) who chooses to participate in this event will be challenged to bring a zero-waste lunch to school. Participating staff and students are also invited to wear ‘free dress’, including at least one green item of clothing to show their support.

Gold coin donations will be collected for the Australian Marine Conservation Society.

 

Our GATE students will visit form classes on this day and record the names of students who are participating. Students who present their no-waste lunchboxes will be entered into a prize draw. The winning student (randomly selected) will receive a prize pack, including:

  • A bento lunchbox;

  • A stainless steel drink bottle; and

  • A set of wax lunch wraps.
