SIX lucky Meadow Springs Primary School pupils will be off to Melbourne for the Kids Teaching Kids Conference on October 24 and 25.

The City of Mandurah offered a $5000 scholarship to a local school that presented at the Perth and Peel Regional Kids Teaching Kids Conference.

The winner was Meadow Springs Primary School, who shared their environmental learnings within their school and the wider community. Meadow Springs pupils inspired other students to take action on important sustainability issues.

The South-West WA regional youth conference was hosted by the City of Mandurah and Baldivis Children’s Forest on September 14 and 15.

Kids Teaching Kids is a free, national, educational program that uses the environment as a focus encouraging students to develop practical solutions to the challenges facing the environment.

Students of all ages tackled complex environmental problems such as climate change, water, waste, conservation, energy, drought, population and pollution.
