Schools Calendar Competition


The Rockhampton Regional Council Sustainability in Action! Schools Calendar Competition is designed to recognise and celebrate sustainability in action at your school.

Whether its making reusable bags, participating in tree planting, developing solar powered vehicles, installing solar panels, exploring water re-use, learning how to look after creeks, composting, tending to vegetable and food gardens, recycling right, reducing food waste, holding nude food days, implementing litter reduction activities, doing nature craft or taking other sustainability actions, schools are at the forefront of educating the next generation about environmental sustainability.
