Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Kincumber Public School to meet with several students who are The Eco Warriors. The Eco Warriors are a group of students committed to reducing the environmental footprint of Kincumber Public School. To date, they have coordinated successful environmental initiatives, including rubbish collections, new bins to dispose of organics, recycling and landfill, and better organisation of reusable containers.

It was exciting meeting with each of these students and listening about their work. I thoroughly I enjoyed answering their questions on important topics like microplastics in our oceans, shark nets, renewable energy and a range of other complex matters. The knowledge shown by each of these students is a testament to the teachers of Kincumber Public School, who do everything they can to ensure the students are given the best education possible.

I look forward to receiving regular updates from The Eco Warriors on their upcoming initiatives like Trash Free Tuesday, scrunch bins and minimising plastics in the school more broadly. To the brilliant students involved with The Eco Warriors at Kincumber Public School: Beau, Joseph, Connor, Julian, India, Billie and Lola—well done and please keep up your marvellous work preserving our environment on the Central Coast. I also say thank you so much to the incredibly passionate teacher, Kylie Stafford. You are an inspiration to not only the students but to the community, more broadly, right across the Central Coast.
