On Thursday 6th August we conducted a waste audit on our school.
A great effort with many students from different classes gathering the waste in our school in preparation for the audit.
During the morning the Enviro Team were busy painting the mural on the fence behind the gardens.
At 12 noon we met Toni Watts and commenced our audit.
There was rubbish all over the place and what fun we had!
We were shocked to see how much rubbish is collected in 1 day. This provides accurate data for us to implement an action plan to do something about it.
Collected was a large container of empty packets that is unable to be recycled, a large container of left over food that is being wasted.
We really enjoyed our day and a big thank you for Toni Watts the Enviro Schools facilitator for assisting us with this audit.
Results can be viewed in our library.
