An inquiry by Year 6 children into plastic pollution, led to the Preparatory School holding an Eco Day.

The students had learnt a lot about the impacts of plastic pollution in the ocean from the New Zealand based charity, Our Seas Our Future, whose Mission Statement is to protect Aotearoa’s coastal and marine  ecosystems through advocacy, education, and environmental stewardship, ensuring that they are managing sustainability and protected for future generations.

They spread awareness about plastic pollution to the rest of the Preparatory School through posters and presentations in classes, and encouraged families to send their children to school with a single-use plastic free lunch, to avoid packaging that is used once and thrown away. Students also collected rubbish around the Preparatory School environment.

The Year 6 students did a great job of pushing this initiative and raising awareness of such an important issue.

Year 6 students participate in an Eco Day, motivated by their inquiry into plastic pollution.
