$17m in funds for work on crown lands in NSW

It is distressing and disconcerting to see the beautiful trails surrounding Byron Bay High School littered with plastic bottles, aluminum cans, snacks wrapping, foil and rubbish of all kinds, which the environmentally uneducated students of this establishment throw every day over their back fence.

Some neighbours like myself have taken to picking up this rubbish by hand but that is a never-ending task. The high school grounds are provided with garbage bins but it seems too much effort for the students to reach them, even though these are right next to their benches in the recreational areas of the school.

I wonder if there is any subject about environment and conservation being taught at this high school and if so, why isn’t it put into practice and enforced  by the high school authorities?

Tallow Creek is an important nature reserve and a much-loved place for its resident animals and human neighbours.

We are concerned about the lack of awareness and disrespect for nature, shown by students of Byron Bay High Shool.

Storylines – Stop the rot and take action

Having spent a long time reflecting on the last 13 weeks since the floods devastated our region, many important issues have come to my attention – loss of homes, possessions, safety, schools suspended from flooding, chaos, death, loss of animals, extreme anxiety and desperation, and so much more.
