Green honour for school
MIRIAM Vale State School was recently bestowed with a great honour.
They were named the Greenest and Healthiest school in Central Queensland as part of the Keep Australia Beautiful Competition.
The competition also had many sub-categories in which Miriam Vale took out quite a few first place prizes.
They were named winner of the Healthy Tuckshop Award and Partnership Award for Central Queensland.
They were also awarded top prize for Year of Environment and Sustainability.
Rockhampton regional councillor Tony Cullen presented the awards at a ceremony in Rockhampton late in August.
Representative/coordinator Lyn Harms will travel to Caloundra later in the month for the next level of honours – the Queensland title.
This is a great achievement for the small school and the children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about healthy eating decisions and how to better make their school a greener and cleaner place.
