Lambton High School holds a "GREEN DAY" each year where students and staff dress in green to acknowledge and celebrate the environment. The theme for this year was "Keep on Rockin' for a Green World" with the focus on Global Warming.
As part of Green Day a number of competitions were held across various faculties as well as performances by Drama and Music students to raise awareness on environmental issues.
Thank you to everyone who sponsored Green Day this year by dressing up in green, giving a gold coin donation and being a participant in the large number of competitions. Thank you also to Mrs Hayden, Mr Badger, Ms Bayly, Ms Fleming, all the Green Team Members and prefects for their hard work in putting together such a successful day. Until next year, "Keep on Rockin' for a Green World".

SCHOOLS WORK TOWARDS REDUCING GLOBAL WARMING
On Friday 27th July the LHS Climate Cam Team attended the launch of Newcastle City Councils new program Climate Cam for Schools.
This program aims at creating a cleaner, greener school over the next five years by installing new water saving taps and bubblers, water tanks, energy efficient lighting and planting trees. The school will also require an environment Management Plan. The council hopes that all 350 schools in the Newcastle/Central coast area join the program to help reduce Global Warming at a community level and to help save money. The program co-ordinator Peter Dormand said "There's no rocket science involved in saving money by saving electricity". Declan Clausen – Year 9
