News & Events - Mix 94.5 Master Milk Carton Regatta

Serpentine Primary School has been selected to participate in the 2022 Masters Milk Carton Regatta.  The craft, which needs to be constructed entirely from 600ml Masters Milk cartons (no milk bottles or larger milk cartons) will be entered into the regatta which will be held on Saturday 26th November at Hillary‚Äôs Boat Harbour.  The craft will be piloted by Serpentine PS staff due to age restrictions but students will be involved in the design and construction of the vessel.

We are asking all parents and community members to support us by collecting as many 600ml Masters Milk cartons as possible and dropping them to Serpentine PS or your local school.  The more cartons we have the better our boat will be so please ask all friends and family to save their cartons.

 Week 2 Update

Our team met again and we believe we have settled on a design. We estimate we will require about 2000 cartons. The hunt for the elusive Masters Milk carton continues, with the little critters seemingly evading our grasp at every turn. So far we have collected 143, thanks largely to a donation of 99 cartons from Madeline Devine and her family. Given the struggles we have had collecting cartons we are considering this  a bit of DEVINE INTERVENTION J.  The call for help goes out to our community to help support the students in this endeavour; so that we can something resembling the ENDEAVOUR instead of something that looks like it was built by Bear Grylls on Running Wild. To all the tradies out there keep drinking those Iced Coffee and save us the cartons, we need you. 

Week 1 Update

We had our first team meeting this week. Discovered that members of our team were lactose intolerant, not a great start. Decided to run a competition with our students to name our team, eagerly awaiting their suggestions.

Started our campaign to collect as many milk cartons as possible. Received really great support from Polly Hammond the Waste Education Officer at the Shire of Serpentine/Jarrahdale who has agreed to advertise and establish a collection point for us.

Milk Cartons Collected So Far: 6

Could be a really small boat at this rate. Hope staff can swim.
