Kairanga School held an Environmental Community Action Day which involved all the participating YRE students planning and running the event.

The students tidied the wetlands area by the school, built a worm farm, planted trees, fruits and vegetables and were shown how to plant clippings in used yogurt bottles. Students were also introduced to the concept of litter less lunches and educated about recycling and how to use scrap buckets in the school. The school conducted a Clean Up Event and created a mural highlighting the effect of litter on oceans.

On the day, students were encouraged to dress up in recyclable or environmentally friendly costumes for a chance to win badges and spot prizes donated by KNZB.
