Our planet is so incredibly important but in order to take care of it properly, we first need to take care of our own bodies and minds. The focus of this year’s Sustainability Day was therefore to promote healthy habits to improve student health and wellbeing. Sustainability Day commenced with a Sustainability Show, at which the Junior and Senior vocal ensembles performed sustainable songs and the best “Healthy Hero” costume winner was announced. A group of students also brought our latest picture book, Healthy Hero, to life with a special performance.
During the day, students participated in a variety of activities and incursions to raise their awareness about healthy, sustainable habits and ideas:
Kidz ‘n Sport Incursion
Water in Aboriginal Culture Incursion
Crunch & Sip Incursion
ECO Faeries Incursion
Break Time Activities led by Year 6 Students
Students were also given the opportunity to watch a movie (K-2) or documentary (3-6) that had a sustainability theme. The screening of these movies/documentaries raised awareness about pressing sustainability issues while raising funds for our 2021 Year 6 Camp. During the screening, students enjoyed some healthy fruit and vegetables with hummus in reusable cups.
Thank you to everyone who participated in Sustainability Day. We hope students learnt something new during Sustainability Day and are inspired to transform into a Healthy Hero!
