OUR ACTION

Over the course of the week all students from Year K-6 will be keeping a class tally of the amount of waste in their lunch box. On Friday the school will be holding its first 'Waste Free Lunch Day'. The students will be able to calculate their impact and determine the amount of landfill saved by having packed a waste free lunch on Friday 16th September.

OUR ACTION

With the support of Bunnings we have set up a number of small vegetable beds in the school. All classes will have the opportunity to look after the plants to ensure some lovely vegetables & herbs are ready to eat by early next term. The garden will allow opportunities for us to learn about where food comes from, the importance of looking after the environment and will also create opportunities to improve local biodiversity.

OUR ACTION

In Term 4, 2016, we will be able to switch off all power in our room and step outside for lessons at least once a week. We will use our newly created outdoor classroom for a variety of lessons.

OUR ACTION

We will be creating an outdoor classroom - with plenty of space to spread out and work on a variety of surfaces. Recycled timber will be used as seating and upcycled timber decking will create opportunities for group work and collaboration.

OUR IMPACT

A packaged lunch box contains three pieces of waste. In a year that fills a 240-litre wheelie bin. We make a lot of waste!

WE ARE CELEBRATING ENVIROWEEK

We held a waste free lunch on the final school day of Enviroweek!
