Reduce, Re-use, Recycle

With our Organic Garden and other work in classrooms on environmental sustainability, our Students already have a great deal of knowledge and care with regard to our natural environment and how we might reduce our ‘footprint’.  In week 3 of Term 3, Hannah visited to help us to learn even more about Reducing, Re-using and Recycling our waste.  The program is sponsored by the City of Kingston.

We had a bit of a chat about the usual rubbish that we humans seem to generate in modern times.  There’s certainly a great deal of packaging of various types to consider.

Students were given the opportunity to put pieces of rubbish into the correct bins.  One for the general rubbish and one for the items which can be recycled.  Billy has chosen the correct bin for his and Miranda and Nastia are taking their turn next.

A light bulb and glass jars….. hmmm …..    Which bin would these go in?    Thanks, Hannah, for an informative program.
