This week we have had presentations from Vivienne Fepuleai who is the Education Officer at Cleanaway. Cleanaway are responsible for removing the waste we create at St Emilie’s and from the households in the City of Gosnells. Vivienne is currently presenting waste and recycling incursions to the students in Years One to Six. These incursions are teaching the students the importance of recycling and sustainability and the impact it will have on our future actions.
Each student has received some information from Cleanaway to take home and share with their families. This will help inform you about the Cleanaway waste service and also the types of waste that can be placed into your yellow recycling bin.
There is also a parent survey that needs to be completed and returned. Cleanaway appreciate your input as it helps them to make informed decisions about the service that they provide. Each student who returns the survey next week will receive a foldable Cleanway rubbish truck and also go into a raffle draw to win a mini wheelie bin.
Here are a few images of the students in Years 1-6 enjoying the incursion.
The students had to sort out the cards and work out how long it takes different types of waste to rot and decompose.
Vivienne played a dice game and the students had to use their imaginations to think of different ways we could creatively recycle different types of waste.
The waste flowing out of this house is the amount waste produces by a family of 5 in one year!!!
Each student has received a copy of this information sheet. By referring to it you can work out which household waste goes into the recycling bin.
