This year's theme was Water Water Everywhere, Only If We Share, coinciding with the United Nations International Year of Water Co-operation.

The school-wide event featured performances and projects by the students.

"It's our one big day that we do something that everyone is involved in," Lambton High School sustainability co-ordinator Caroline Hayden said.

At the morning concert, music and drama students presented sustainable message performances they had worked on over the school term.

Students competed in a green-themed cupcake competition for a prize from the $500 worth of vouchers donated by local businesses.

The student representative council and prefects organised and operated the day's activities.

Money raised will go towards sustainable school grounds projects.
