Annalia Rathoor is an 11-year-old environmentalist with big dreams. She was nominated for a Barbara Ward: Caring for the Environment Award at the Celebrating Young People Awards for her recent efforts at school litter-picking, banning plastic and for her innovative animal safety campaigns. She was also one of the lead members of her Eco Team to help renew her schools Green Flag Award. Her desire to look after our planet was also noted by the Green School assessor.
Her teacher said, “Annalia`s enthusiasm is unfaltering. She passes the eco message onto staff and her peers clearly, with passion, and never lets the school forget to push our Eco initiatives! I think receiving this award will remind Annalia, and many others, that although she is young, her voice can be heard and she can make a difference.”
