SIX Meadow Springs Primary School students sang for City of Mandurah councillors at their meeting after returning from the Kids Teaching Kids conference in Melbourne in October.
The City of Mandurah offered a $5000 scholarship earlier this year to a local school that presented at the Perth and Regional Kids Teaching Kids conference.
The scholarship went to Meadow Springs students who shared their environmental learnings with the school and the community and inspired other students to take action on important sustainability issues.
At last week’s council meeting, the students told councillors they had travelled by train, plane and bus, stayed in a backpackers, been involved in workshops, made a presentation before 600 people at Melbourne University and “had a lot of fun”.
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.
