National Banana Day

May 1st was declared as National Banana Day in Australia. These kinds of interesting days happen almost every day of the year, and can be great starting points for student leaders to come up with school activities.

Banana Day was declared by the group ‘Banana’s Australia’. For a list of more ‘national days’ that are declared in Australia throughout the year go to:
