SPARC Week Shines Spotlight on Climate Change - 28 June 2016

Week 8 was a successful and busy week for all the SPARC (Students Protecting and Restoring Creation) girls.

We kicked off SPARC Week with a tour of the College by our group mascot, SPARCY the Frog. SPARCY, along with Alana Pepe and myself, hopped around the school telling the girls about our focus for the year and the events of SPARC Week. SPARC’s focus for this year is to get everyone serious about climate change because it is high time for change. Thankfully, speaking to the girls, it was clear that people are already beginning to change their views.

On Tuesday, we all went out to Virginia Avenue to participate in our quarterly Adopt-A-Road, where we cleaned up both Virginia Avenue and Hawthorne Road.

On Wednesday, we had girls flocking to our very green bake sale and all of the funds raised will eventually contribute to getting more recycling bins around the school. On Thursday we celebrated the annual Recycled Fashion Show. We had three entries this year, from Hannah Sisson, Ciara Heslin and Tallulah Tutt. Our first place winner was Hannah Sisson, who had created a lovely formal inspired dress, made out of newspaper, as well as dazzling tin foil shoes. Congratulations to all of the girls who participated and congratulations to Mr Pousson, who entered his own little recycled number!

We then concluded SPARC Week with a school-wide Earth Hour, where the lights and power were switched off in Period 7 to highlight the need to save power and the environment.

Alana Pepe and I would like to say a massive thank you to all of the SPARC girls for making our last SPARC Week so successful. Thank you also to Mr Pousson, our mentor teacher, for supporting us throughout SPARC Week.

SPARC Captain
