The children in Year 2 were very excited and enthusiastic about their role as planet protectors. We found out about taking care of our environment by not dropping rubbish, not wasting resources and by recycling materials carefully. We learnt 3 very important words: REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE. The highlight was our trip to Stokes Bay beach where we collected 3 black sacks full of rubbish, mostly plastic, that we found on the beach. We also found out about a scheme to recycle crisp packets (which usually have to go to landfill). The children have made posters to let children and parents know about this scheme and they will be introducing this idea in an assembly in the coming weeks.
