Mans­field stu­dents learn about sus­tain­abil­ity

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/PEOPLE -

LAST week, grade six stu­dents from across all three of Mans­field’s pri­mary schools gath­ered to­gether for a spe­cial event, hosted by Up2Us Land­care.

Kids Teach­ing Kids aims to bring up­per level pri­mary school stu­dents to­gether to talk all things en­vi­ron­men­tal – in­clud­ing top­ics cov­ered by in­di­vid­ual class­rooms.

Af­ter the morn­ing’s ses­sion, stu­dents hit the foot­path and en­joyed a sus­tain­abil­ity trail around Mans­field.

The day was spon­sored by the Mans­field Bendigo Bank branch, and was fa­cil­i­tated by Up2Us Land­care.

TAKE MY PHOTO: Keen to have their pic­ture in the pa­per was this group of stu­dents from St Mary’s, Mans­field and Steiner Pri­mary Schools.
