These amazing environmental thinkers are coming to SCEGGS for one lunchtime only, on Thursday 7 November at 1pm in the Lecture Theatre, to answer this important question posed Zoe Brenner, the Year 11 organiser of this event:
"We are all wanting to educate ourselves so that we can make the best decisions as many of us will vote for the first time at the next state and federal elections. We all want to do things in our own lives and future education and jobs that are good for the environment and the planet. What are your thoughts and advice on this important area?"
All students from Year 5 up are invited to come and hear these speakers. Bring your lunch and be seated in the Lecture Theatre at the start of lunch.
On Friday students worldwide, are taking a stand against climate change. In response to this, the Maailma Environment club has decided to host a number of activities throughout the day that promote positive environmental action.
Students will be provided with the opportunity to write and discuss their questions and concerns about climate change. A panel of politicians will be invited to speak to these concerns at an event to be organised in November.
Pedal powered smoothies will be made at recess and lunch using bicycles in the Secondary School.
These will be sold for $2 and will be available in two flavours; mango & banana and strawberry & banana. Students will also be required to bring their own keep cups if they wish to purchase a smoothie. There will be a number of ‘borrow a mugs’ available for use.
You can also show your support for the environment by wearing a green ribbon or scrunchie on the day.
