After participating in the Aussie Bird Count, Early Learning students in the Garrawan class researched other ways to support birds in Australia. Teacher Miriam Jones taught them about the Save Toondah Harbour campaign by playing videos from BirdLife Australia and the Flyways documentary on ABC. They learnt that Toondah Harbour is an important habitat for migratory shorebirds, including the critically endangered eastern curlew and it is currently under threat from a big building development.
The students decided to make posters to help save Toondah Harbour and one of the students, Artem, also wrote a letter to Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek. Mrs Jones sent their posters and letters to the Minister. The class also met with Year 10 geography students to share their knowledge of the Save Toondah Harbour campaign.
Heartfelt thanks to teacher Miriam Jones for organising this fun and educational activity for Garrawan students.
