On Sunday 30 October, Scotch Oakburn College will be hosting a Catch it in the Catchment event focused on collecting rubbish in the kanamaluka / Tamar estuary catchment. This College community event will be held on the southern banks of the North Esk River adjacent to the Scotch Oakburn College Rowing Shed between 9:30 am to 11:30 am and we would love to see you and your family there!
