School Strike for Climate Change

On 24 March, 2022, our school had a “Sit-In” for “School Strike for Climate Change Australia.” Students gathered on The Terrace and shared many ideas for caring for the planet. Friday May 6 is another day for “School Strike for Climate Change Australia.”

Everyone can make a difference on any day, to support Planet Earth. Below are some ideas shared with our students for May 6.

Some happy news: most AHS buildings are being covered in solar panels (if permitted – some can’t have solar panels due to Heritage listing). Below is Claver Theatre being covered in solar panels taken on 22 April 2022 😊

Thank you for all your climate protection actions.
