Recently some Year 12 and 13 students attended the Caritas Youth Leadership Day in Dunedin. The topic was ‘climate change’ and how it affected the Pacific Nations of Kiribati Fiji and Papua New Guinea. Following the introductions, we all separated in to groups and learnt about the size different countries carbon footprints, the effect of climate change on Pacific Islands and also came to understand the difficulties these nations face. Huge thank to Michael, Gemma and Murray, who led the day, and to Mr Terry for arranging the transport and putting up with us all.
