Students from Sacred Heart Primary School at Sandgate on Brisbane's northside have combined their efforts with Brisbane City Council in a bid to revitalise a landmark local lagoon.
The Northside Chronicle reports the fight to save Dowse Lagoon has drawn another ally.
A Catholic Education sustainability spokesman visited the lagoon alongside students from Sacred Heart Primary School last week.
Brisbane Catholic Education's executive officer for environmental sustainability Bernard Holland visited the lagoon to see first hand the learning activities Sacred Heart students have been involved in.
"Sacred Heart is doing a great job and I give full credit to Brisbane City Council for the way they have engaged with the community on this feedback," Mr Holland said.
Mr Holland said he would recommend Sacred Heart's learning program at the lagoon as a model in environmental studies for other Catholic schools.
"There are three levels: the personal level of each individual, the level of their organisation, and working with other organisations to achieve a goal," Mr Holland said. "Sacred Heart has achieved all these levels very well."
Students from both Sacred Heart and nearby Sandgate State School have incorporated Dowse Lagoon into their science and environmental studies as the council called for public feedback on how best to revitalise the iconic location.
