Boyanup Primary School has taken out top spot in a sustainability competition, Switch Your Thinking, in the primary school category of Young Re-inventor of the Year.
The school’s winning entries were scarecrows made from recycled overalls, donated by a farmer, stuffed with old straw and jeans with plants which were tied to the fence.
There were 136 individual re-inventions, created by more than 350 young people from across Western Australia. The entries were ranked by an independent judging panel and Boyanup Primary School came out on top.
Switch your thinking is a local government sustainability initiative working across 15 Local Governments in Perth and Peel regions.
Young Re-inventor of the Year is open to schools throughout the State and this competition was organised by the City of Gosnells and supported by the Waste Wise Authority.
The award was presented on November 23 at a Boyanup Primary School assembly, with Shire of Capel President Murray Scott who was invited to attend and present the school with their framed winner’s certificate.
The school has also won a tailored sustainability prize pack to the value of $1000 which will help them on their sustainability journey.
