Chev’s many happy returns to keep Australia beautiful

Chevalier College has proudly won a Keep Australia Beautiful NSW 2019 Tidy Towns Award for the Return and Earn Litter Prevention Award for Schools in Category A (population up to 2000).

The Sydney Royal Show students have worked hard over the past two years to collect and return used drink containers through the Return and Earn deposit scheme which pays 10 cents for each container. Money raised goes towards the costs involved in participating in the show, such as accommodation and meals, and clipping the steers.
