Taking Action on Solar Poverty

7 September 2022

Our Year 3 boys have been busy learning about our neighbouring countries and helping out our Pacific neighbours in a hands on way.

As part of their Unit of Inquiry, ‘Where we are in place and time’, the Year 3 boys have been busy learning about Australia and our neighbouring countries, including Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Fiji and Vanuatu. They have independently researched Australia and one of our closest neighbours and identified similarities and differences. Today they took action by building Solar Buddy Lamps as Part of the ‘Light up Vanuatu’ Campaign. These lights, along with letters from our boys, will go to children who are living in energy poverty in Vanuatu.
