Our Story So Far…
'Fossick for 5' asks students, teachers and staff to fossick for and collect 5 pieces of rubbish a day during Enviroweek.
'Fossick for 5' is based on Tim Silverwood's Find 3 but with a local (Central Goldfields) flavour. Litter, plastics particularly, lie around increasingly hidden, often making their way into our waterways, or sometimes picked up by fauna, ingested or used for habitat. During Enviroweek and lead by our ResourceSmart Waste Green Team, our activity asks the school community to fossick for 5 pieces of rubbish a day, small or not so small and bring to a collection point back at school. What can we learn from our litter and what can we do better.
