Trinity students clean up Australia

Last Sunday, students from the Residential College teamed up with representatives from Foundation Studies and a group from Ormond College, for Clean Up Australia Day, to show our commitment to inspiring our community to take part in sustainable practices.

Around 30 students from all year levels spent two hours cleaning the area around Princes Park, before enjoying lunch together. The day provided the chance to meet engaged and like-minded students from Ormond, while doing something positive for the environment.

'Princes Park is an area that many Trinitarians use and enjoy on a regular basis, which gives us good reason to look after and take pride in its appearance,' Hanna McCreath (2nd year Arts) and Sustainability Intern, said.

'It is also important to the greater community of which we are a part. In addition, the day gave us a chance to share ideas and plans with our counterparts from around the crescent – we recognise that we can have a much greater impact on the environment if we partner together with others.

'The Trinity Environments Club is looking forward to working with Ormond’s Sustainability Subcommittee throughout the year to improve sustainability on campus, and to develop intercollegiate initiatives. We hope these will eventually involve, and be embraced by, more than just the two colleges.'

In all, the day proved to be a successful starting point for the year, for sustainability at Trinity, and beyond.
