Teaching and Learning

Students have been working with local community members, regional and local Natural Resource Management (NRM) officers and the Ribbons of Blue program to monitor the water at Minyulo Creek. Data has been recorded in graphs that compare the health of the creek over the past two years. Mitre 10 has contributed $500 for the purchase of water monitoring equipment with the help of Landcare. The school and the local community share the equipment.
