Our Story So Far…

At Bright Beginnings Forbes we will be composting, worm farming, energy saving, water saving, gardening, recycling and creating!!!!

During Enviroweek 2014, the children and staff at Bright Beginnings Forbes participated in the Waste Warrior Challenge, Wild Child Challenge, Green Thumb Challenge and Sparkie Challenge. We had lots of fun composting, planting fruit and vegies in our recycled pallet garden, planting herbs in our recycled vertical pallet/milk carton garden and creating beautiful recycled artworks. We added 1000 red worms to our existing worm farm and fed them our kitchen scraps. Throughout the week we also turned the classroom lights off and nominated children to be our "dripping tap police" and "energy saving officers"! With beautiful weather forecast for the week we spent most of our days out in the garden watering and caring for our environment! Using stories and Enviroweek's curriculum resources we experimented with light and had group discussions each day about saving and caring for our environment!
