Schools Clean Up Australia Day

On Friday 1 March, seven Year 8 volunteers, Mrs Miller and I ventured out into the surrounding streets, in the heat, to pick up rubbish. Not the most glamorous of excursions, but definitely an important one.

2019 marked the 30th anniversary of the very first Clean Up Sydney Harbour event started by Mr Ian Kiernan, AO in 1989 and this year De La Salle College was proud to participate in what has now become the nation’s largest community-based environmental event. 

Taking action doesn’t have to stop here though. If you would like to continue the efforts, check out Love Our Streets and Love Our Beach — a joint organisation that run clean-up events on a monthly basis, taking place on a Saturday.
