Taking 3 for the sea

Posted on 5 July 2018
On Friday 29 June we celebrated Walk to School Day, walking or travelling to school in a safe and sustainable way.

On our trip to school we also did our bit for the Bay by collecting ""3 for the sea"" - picking up three (or more!) pieces of rubbish and stopping them from making their way into Port Phillip Bay or our canal.

The activity was part of our Operation STEAM Clean the Bay (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, Maths) â" a 3 year program generously funded by the Port Phillip Bay Fund which has and will continue to see a number of wonderful environmental improvements and opportunities come to our school over the next 3 years.

In line with the Fund's focus, the program aims to transform our landscape, curriculum and leadership projects, making people think about and connect the health of the Bay to everyday decisions and ultimately improve Bay health. The program includes conducting community engagement activities - like 3 for the Sea - that increase awareness of the Bay's environmental health and value.

On behalf of our Bay, thank you to everyone that took part.
