Clean Up Australia Day at Kool Kidz Docklands

Clean Up Australia Day at Kool Kidz Docklands

On Friday the 2nd of March, it was School’s Clean Up Australia Day. The Kindergarten children partnered up with the Beetlebugs children to clean up our yard using tongs and gloves. The children enjoyed working together to pick up the rubbish that was found and filling up the bin. Once the yard was clean, we still had children looking for rubbish so we decided to venture off to Docklands park to give it a clean. The children were super excited to go on an excursion to clean up Australia. While cleaning, Harshith said “we have to keep our environment clean” and Rohan added “to keep the animals safe”. Chloe pointed out all the rubbish that we found on the walk back to Kool Kidz and said “Oh no! Look at all the rubbish on the ground. Lucky we’re good people and we’ll pick it up for them.” Overall we had a very successful clean-up day. We filled up two bags of garbage. The children are aware of the impact litter has on the environment and are active participants in the keeping our yard clean J
