SWAN ENVIRONMENTAL ART PROJECT 2018
This annual environmental art project provides an opportunity for primary school children in the City of Swan to engage with local and global environmental issues and promote a positive message about the importance of protecting the earth.
THEME FOR 2018: PLASTIC POLLUTION - Finding solutions to reduce our footprint
We have all heard the three “R’s” ‘Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle’ but what does it ACTUALLY mean for everyday life?
Students are asked to investigate what changes can individuals make to minimize the harmful effects of plastic on our planet?
Students will investigate the impact of plastic pollution and how we can each make changes to help shape a more positive future, for a healthier Earth.
