Attendees will be invited to join in a 'walkout' to the council chambers in period 5 and 6, from 1:35 pm, on the day to attempt to show the people in power our passion for the issue and our desire to be heard. All you have to do is turn up and help us make a change because if they won't, we will.
It is understood, as advised by other local principles, that there has been a directive from "higher up" that schools are not to be involved.
The day is a an International Student day of Striking to make a clear statement.
If your school or teachers have anything planned be sure to add the event to the comments School Strike 4 Climate Australia organisers offer on their campaign website: "To everyone who cares about a safe climate future, this is your open invite to join our School Strike 4 Climate on March 15 - students standing up when our politicians won’t.Australia is in the thick of the climate crisis. "Prolonged drought cripples farming communities. Flash flooding is creating chaos in cities. Catastrophic bushfires and severe cyclones threaten people’s homes. Heatwaves are sweeping the nation. Half the Great Barrier Reef is dead. And yet our politicians refuse to stop massive new fossil fuel projects like Adani’s coal mine." "So, on March 15, school students are walking out of school to tell our politicians to take all of us seriously and start treating climate change for what it is: a crisis and the biggest threat to our generation and generations to come. "EVERYONE IS INVITED." "Tens of thousands of students across Australia and around the world will join us. If you’re an adult, take the day off and join us in solidarity."
