Bay in frame
Dunsborough Primary School celebrated its annual Bay OK Day last Friday.
Students spent the day discovering how to better care for and take pride in their environment, as well as learning about Geographe Bay’s unique ecosystems.
Now in its eighth year, Bay OK Day offers a scope of activities from kindergarten to Year 6 six including a touch pool, fishing, exposure to Western Ringtail Possums, marine safety and analysing the bone structures of native animals.
Dunsborough Primary School sustainability team leader Helena Nicholson said the initiative built an appreciation for the natural environment and science with a hands-on approach.
“Bay OK Day is a celebration of the sustainability practices that we carry out in the school as part of the Geocatch program,” she said.
“The external providers that attend the event are experts in their field, giving students another avenue to information and the opportunity to link the school with the wider community.”
