Tuesday, June 5th will turn into 'Green Day' at Sunshine Beach High School, with events ranging from a green pancake cook up to screenings of Al Gore's film, 'An Inconvenient Truth'.
With the aim of raising awareness of students and staff as to how they can render their school more 'green' or environmentally friendly, the Student Council has organised the events, with the sponsorship of Noosa & District Landcare, Noosa Council's TravelSmart team and Queensland Transport's Smart Travel Centre.
Teacher Sally Haxton says the project will start with all classrooms aiming to use as little electricity as possible on the day, limiting the operation of lights, fans, computers, etc.
Landcare's Phil Moran has already spent some time at the School, suggesting ways to reduce carbon emissions and assessing the best places to put additional trees, which will be planted by all Year 8 students and teachers - sponsored by Landcare.
"TravelSmart is sponsoring two screenings (for Years 8 and 9) of Al Gore's film 'An Inconvenient Truth'," said Ms Haxton.  "They will also be organising a TravelSmart raffle for us."  Associated activities will include badge making and entertainment by a band - and if the event is as successful as its organisers predict, members of the public may be invited to participate next year.
