Getting Wastewise!

In room 8, we are determined to be wastewise. Our monitors Anita, Tumanako and Po do a great job of taking down our rubbish everyday and managing our compost. We are getting much better at making sure all of our rubbish goes in the correct bin and we make sure that we do not take rubbish outside at morning tea and lunchtime.

However, rubbish still ends up in our school grounds. This is concerning as we have learnt that this rubbish can take hundreds or thousands of years to breakdown and it can end up in our drains and rivers.

Today we decided to go on a clean up of the school and to see how much rubbish we could find. To make it a challenge, we split up into our six table groups to see who could retrieve the most rubbish. We did an excellent job and the school looked very tidy once we had finished!
