Since the first official Clean Up Australia Day on 21 January 1990, communities all over Australia have gotten involved each year and taken positive, practical action to clean up the environment. This year, once again many of our CEDoW schools have embraced the opportunity to join in and clean up their "own backyard".

At Holy Family Ingleburn, the school came together to take practical action in improving their environment. Students were informed about the impact of rubbish on the local environment, and played an active role in helping clean up their school.


 At St Pius X Unanderra the new Kindergarten children enthusiastically took part in their first "Clean Up" continuing the great tradition of environmental activism of the school.

St Joseph's Albion Park held a "Clean Up Joey's Day" collecting 99 bags of rubbish from around the school.

Clean Up activities were student led at Corpus Christi Oak Flats and also were inspired by a promotional video created by the WEN Teacher Contact, Mr Justin Gallinar. Click here to view the video Clean Up Australia 2023 
Stella Maris Shellharbour students participated in Clean Up Australia Day gaining inspiration and empowerment to join communities in cleaning up, fixing up and conserving the environment.

The school community at Ss Peter and Paul Kiama is so fortunate to be close to the beach and they took the opportunity to clean up their beachside school.
