Students for Sustainability!

This term our focus for Inquiry Learning is ‘sustainability. Some of our Year 6 students were concerned that while we recycled paper and cardboard and collect food scraps for our compost bins, soft plastics were being thrown away. This prompted a conversation in the Discovery Centre with our Librarian which led to the students setting up a soft plastics collection. The photo shows what was collected in just two days – the collection was nearly as tall as Big Ted! The next step is for our Year 6 students to work out ways of collecting this across all classrooms and how it will be returned for recycling. We love that this action has come from the students and they are driving it – our future is in good hands.
