Albany Hills State School is a finalist in an art competition for the World Science Festival, Brisbane that will be held at the Queensland Museum from 20 – 24 March. The winning school will have the opportunity of naming one of the hatchlings from the Turtle Hatchery, you can see during the festival.
Meet Rethink the turtle.
His message is:
- Plastics can change shape.
- Humans can change what they do.
- Rethink, reduce, reuse and recycle.
The early years students collaborated to make Rethink. Year 1 and 2 students collected plastic waste from the eating area that could end up in our oceans and used it to create an art piece to raise awareness about marine pollution. They stuffed the rubbish into a big plastic bag, made a shell and then Preps, Year 1 and Year 2 students drew little turtles to decorate Rethink. Then a small group of Year 2 and Year 3 students presented the art work and its message to the school community.
You can visit Rethink the turtle, when you visit the World Science Festival Brisbane at the Queensland Museum on level 2.
