Woolworths 2021 National Landcare Award Winner

Congratulations to 2021 National Landcare Award winner of the Woolworths Junior Landcare Team Award:

Newham Primary School, VIC

With just 140 students and eight staff, Newham Primary School is achieving great results with its environmental and sustainability programs. Students have planted indigenous vegetation along a tributary of Deep Creek that abuts the school, creating a nature corridor for local wildlife that connects with the Cobaw Biolink. They’ve also designed and built a wetland to provide an alternative breeding ground for frogs which 10 southern brown tree frogs now call home.

The Woolworths Junior Landcare Team Award acknowledges a school, youth organisation or young community landcare team that contributes to raising awareness, sharing knowledge and promoting participation of landcare amongst young people. The award recognises Junior Landcare teams who implement landcare practices within the local community or school.

Nominations are open to young people aged 18 or under, eligible groups include primary schools, secondary schools, Scouts, Girl Guides, youth organisations or young community landcare teams.
