Finally we have decided on some of our actions. Thank you to all those who have commented on our blog!

Some students are growing plant food for the Orange Bellied Parrot. This idea came from our visit to Healesville Sanctuary.

Mark is having a fundraiser at school to raise a donation for the Tassie Devils Fund at Australia Zoo!
Conor wants to promote possum boxes in our gardens to protect our possums (who many just call pests!)

Another team has decided to promote "Wipe for Wild-life" which is a campaign to convince people to use recycled toilet paper! Again, we learnt all about this programme at Healesville Sanctuary.
Fin and his team are going to investigate whether we can assist in our local parklands. (see our magnificant local habitat photographed by our Middles photographers)

Three students have already joined FOTZ (friends of the zoo).


  1. Great work Middles. We are looking forward to seeing what you do. It is so important to make our learning meaningful by taking actions that matter. You have some wonderful ideas on sharing your learning. Well done.
    Mrs Gridley and JuniorG

  2. Well done Middles - Can't wait to put some of these Actions into place - Hope you have enjoyed this Investigation

  3. What a fantastic response! I am very impressed with your ideas for supporting our wildlife. Top work Middles!

  4. Amazing and such worthwhile actions Middle MY! I agree with Mrs Gridley - we must take our learning out into the world and see if we can make a difference. Fantastic work - what is the recycled toilet paper like??? :)

  5. Great ideas Middles! You are truly inspirational and show how simple actions can have a significant impact.
    I'm looking forward to finding out how many lollies are in that jar and how much Mark was able to raise for the Tassie Devils.
