Nautilus Project holds World Ocean Day award ceremony

An award ceremony for the Nautilus Project’s 6th annual World Ocean Day school competition was held in the Alameda Botanical Gardens where the overall school winners were Bayside with ‘Think before you act’, St Joseph’s Lower Primary ‘Reducing our carbon footprint’ and St Paul’s Lower Primary with ‘Share the love’.

The minister for environment, climate change and education, Dr John Cortes, awarded the accolades.
