Tarremah students take action on climate change

Senior students at Tarremah Steiner School raised money and awareness about climate change at the School's fair on Sunday, November 11.

The students call themselves The Susteinerbles and made beeswax wraps to sell at the fair.
They sold out within the first few hours.
The Susteinerbles meet once a week to discuss issues and consider their approach towards making Tarremah more environmentally friendly.
“Our long-term goal is to purchase solar panels for the school and repower the school to 100 per cent renewable energy,” said member of the Susteinerbles, Jacqui Kumpulainen.
“We have started with small changes, such as providing compost buckets and paper recycling systems in every classroom.
“We have also initiated a rubbish-free lunch day on Tuesdays.
“Our planet is suffering, and it is our responsibility to create change. “Every single person can do something to help, no matter how small. 
“We hope that by creating this group, raising awareness and starting to make small changes in our school, we can shine a brighter light on our future,” said Jacqui.
