  • Grovedale West Primary School

    Students at Grovedale West Primary School have been investigating the different ecosystems in Australia and the important interconnections within them. The students designed a stall for a whole school 'Ecosystem Expo’ with the purpose to inform and inspire people in our community to take action to help conserve Australia’s wildlife and plants. The stalls ranged from interactive displays, artworks, games, dioramas and products. The day was a huge success raising awareness about conservation in Australia and also important money, through a gold coin donation, for Zoos Victoria and the Friends of the Leadbeater’s Possum.

  • St. Peter’s Primary School South West Sunshine

    After visiting Melbourne Zoo, year 5 and 6 students from St. Peter’s Primary School South West Sunshine decided to help endangered species by collecting old mobile phones for the They’re Calling on You campaign, presented on the threats faced by orang-utans at school assembly and held a mini-fete raising over $800 to support locally endangered species. In November they will be taking part in our Seal the Loop Action Day, cleaning up the Kororoit River behind their school.
