  • Wantirna College

    Year 9 Environmental Science students completed the Common Cents Challenge to raise funds for the Eastern Barred Bandicoot, as well as completing a research assignment to learn more about this critically endangered species.The students were also given a challenge to undertake a simple action that makes a real difference to endangered wildlife; some of their actions included a Monopoly-style conservation board game using wildlife shelters, zoos and conservation organisations as their properties, setting up a Go Fund Me page to raise money for the Orange-bellied Parrot and creating a computer game about the Tasmanian Devil. Year 7 students have also been learning about local endangered species and will be using the fighting extinction work of the Year 9 students later in the year when they complete their Future's unit focused on conservation. 

  • 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.
