Friends of Jirdarup Bushland – Photography Competition
It’s on again!
Last year the diversity and creativity of the younger entrants was positively inspiring. The overall Junior winner was Sav Noble from Kent St SHS (and ex Millen student), and primary schooler Ching Li Yu was the runner up (both submitted photos of flowers). Competition details and the entries portal are on our website www.fojb.org.au.
You may have noticed a lot of new small bins around with ‘Feed Me’ signs on them. Our Planet Millen team have been busy encouraging students to recycle as much as they can. Families can also help by bringing in eligible containers for our Containers for Change program. The big bins for these items are outside the artroom.
