Ripples of Change grant Redlynch State College
GBRMPA Reef Guardian Director Karen Vohland said the grant would allow students to continue and expand on their environmental work.
"The Redlynch State College has been actively involved in the Reef Guardian Schools program and have been recognised for their efforts to improve sustainability through education," she said.
"This funding will be used to establish an environmental club at the school where students can participate in Reef Guardian learning activities."
"The school will purchase a club resource library, science and safety equipment and design club t-shirts to engage students in sustainability."
Twenty $500 grants are awarded by the GBRMPA each year to assist Reef Guardian Schools to undertake small environmental projects within their schools.
The schools nominate a project they would like to initiate and present a project plan to the GBRMPA.
The selected schools receive their grants early in the year to allow them time to implement their projects within the school year cycle.
Reef Guardian Schools is an environmental education program run by the GBRMPA.
The program aims to create awareness, understanding and appreciation of the Great Barrier Reef and its connected ecosystems.
