Gold Coast Kids Go Green

Gold Coast Kids Go Green!


We are excited to anounce that along with Natura Education and Composta Australia we have launched a competition to encourage Gold Coast Primary School students to think a little greener.

We are now on the search for nature loving teachers and parents to be the driving force behind the competition and share the information with the school and students. The great thing about this competition is that small changes can make a big difference!


We are asking parents and teachers to encourage school students to design a green project idea for their school which will benefit the environment. They have 8 weeks to present the idea.


In return, 5 lucky schools will have a share in cash and prizes valued over $2,200 to put towards their schools green project. The prizes include;
