Cessnock City Council is proud to announce St Philips Christian College and Kurri Kurri High School are finalists in the Waste Ops competition.

This Cessnock City Council program called on Year 7 and 8 students to get creative and write a film script and storyboard for a 60 second TV commercial.

The ultimate goal of the commercial is to help shift the way we think about waste and encourage people to change their behaviour and the amount of waste they generate.

 As finalists, St Philips and Kurri Kurri High Schools had their storyboards professionally filmed and both are now live on the Waste Ops website at www.wasteops.com.au.  

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent is proud of our local students efforts and is calling on the community to jump online and vote for their favourite commercial.  

“The students have done a fantastic job in getting the waste messages across, so let’s show our support by going to the Waste Ops website and voting.”  

Voting closes on Monday 30 October and the winning commercial will be announced on the Waste Ops website on Tuesday 7 November. The winning school will win a grand prize of $1000 to go towards a school project of their choice! To find out more, visit www.wasteops.com.au.
