On Thursday, 15 August, the College held its sixth annual Sustainability Expo. The event was organised by the Year 12 Sustainability Mentor and also incorporated work from the Year 11 ATAR Health Studies students and many other students work was showcased.
The Expo recognises the importance of sustainability and celebrates our contribution to make a more sustainable place for everyone. The focus of the Expo was on environmental issues including recycling and up-cycling, microorganisms and eco systems, preserving our endangered native animals and understanding the importance of story-telling through a progressive Indigenous art piece.
Through the Expo, the College has created many partnerships with external community organisations such as City of Wanneroo, Tamala Park and Earth Carers, Water Corporation, Department of Parks and Wildlife, Urban Indigenous, United Nations and a number of private organisations. This year, Kinross College had several displays for students to explore also. Mindarie students actively participated in the activities on offer and there was a positive vibe throughout the event.
A sausage sizzle fundraiser was held during lunchtime raising over $350. All proceeds from the sausage sizzle will be donated to RSPCA and Friends of the Western Ground Parrot Inc.
The College would like to acknowledge Prof Steve Chapman, ECU Vice Chancellor, Mr Mark Folkard MLA, Member for Burns Beach, and Mr Rod Buckenara, Kinross Principal, for taking the time to attend the Expo.
Congratulations to Elise Gaglio and Tracy Smith and their Sustainability Mentor students for raising the awareness of these important issues at the College and in the wider community.
