Year 3 Greenies
We will reduce our waste and set up recycling systems.
We are collecting plastic water bottles,cans, plastic lids, plastic milk bottles, oral care products and fruit pouches to recycle and reuse. We put out our 3 recycling bins every lunch time. We send the oral care products away to be recycled. We use the plastic bottles in our room for art. The milk bottles are used to make spades to use in our garden.
All students involved in researching plants which are used for medicinal purposes. Planting and using herbs from our garden. We are making a Medicinal plant booklet showing the uses of each plant we have in our garden. We are using our crunch'n sip scraps for our worm farm. We collect the worm juice and sell it. With the money we buy, plants, soil, seedlings for our " Sustainability HUB" We are greening our bare area near the library.
Our Class has a Sparky inspector who checks classrooms for lights left on, heaters and Fans left on and advises the teacher. Classes get points for turning their electric lights, heaters and aircons off when not in the room. Every 3 weeks the light bulb award is given to the class with the most points for being Sparkywise.
