Green Schools Action Day

Yesterday we held our Action Day for our Green Schools program. We are currently working on the ‘water’ flag.

We all dressed in blue for the day and completed lots of water related activities.

In the morning, we all went on a water themed scavenger hunt around the school grounds. During the day, we also completed a ‘Walk for Water’ where we all walked 6 kilometres whilst carrying 12 litres of water between us.  This was to help us understand the difficult journey that many people, including children of our age, have to make daily for water in some parts of the world.

In the afternoon, the Senior Room had to design an aluminium boat that would stay afloat when some coins were placed inside. The Junior Room drew diagrams of the water cycle and set up an experiment to test evaporation.

We had a great, fun-filled day as you can see from our pictures!
