The Summer Holidays are a time when families get organised for the new school year. During that time thousands of outgrown school shoes and pencil cases full of stationery are thrown away.
Meanwhile, many children in Papua New Guinea, who are our closest neighbours, are keen learners but lack basic stationery and appropriate footwear for school.
The Pass it On Project aims to stop the outgrown and no longer needed items going to landfill, and instead give them a second life, by distributing them to children throughout Papua New Guinea.
With permission from parents, students are asked to leave behind their school shoes and pencil cases on the last day of school, so that they can be collected and passed on
