Enactus Bond takes its eco-friendly message to Robina Primary School

A group of socially and environmentally active Bond University students from Enactus Bond will be visiting Robina State Primary School this week for the third time to help educate the young students on how to be more eco-friendly.

The visit, which is part of Enactus’ Eco-kids project, will be the largest held at the school, with all the Year 6 classes participating - over 100 children in total. The students will be involved in a range of interactive and practical activities that focus on re-using and recycling materials.

These activities are hugely beneficial for the children, as in addition to helping them to create a more environmentally friendly future, they also get to sharpen their teamwork and problem solving skills and are encouraged to become more responsible and proactive.

Earlier this year, the Eco-kids team visited a class of Year 2 students from the same school to help teach them the importance of saving water, all the ways we use water in our daily lives and the need to be conscious of the amount of water we waste.

The Eco-Kids project started in September last year, when the Enactus Bond team decided they wanted to create a project that involved children.

“We believe in the power that kids have to make a difference in the world,” said the project leader for Eco-Kids, Stephanie Smith.

“The best way to start changing the world we live in is by changing the community around us, which is why we’re running this project with local Gold Coast schools,” she said.

“Robina State Primary School was the first school to agree to get involved in this project, and both Robina School and Enactus Bond are really happy with the outcomes.”

Bond Enactus member, Christopher Talia, said it was a hugely rewarding experience to be part of the Enactus Bond team.

“The Enactus Bond team is determined to make a real impact in the world, and there is no better way to start achieving this than by educating young schoolchildren,” he said.

“We’re really keen to expand and grow the Eco-kids project here on the Gold Coast and spread the word about eco-friendly activities like recycling and water conservation amongst schools and the broader community.“
