Moving to connect our whole school community with recycling we had an Earth Day Celebration, where the Green Club and Kindergartens asked each class to create our very own Andrew Sibbald Earth Superhero. Each class was challenged with the task of constructing one body part of our hero by using only recycled material, each piece was brought together in a final meet up in the gym and was unveiled. This was show of how a community can work together to create. This event marks the handing over of stewardship to all students and teachers in our school. Students chosen for the Green Crew from each class in the school will now take over the job of collecting and handling all recycling including composting. We are excited to see how the work of a small group of very committed students from the Green Club will be carried forward. Not only will they take responsibility for the practical part but also show leadership through teaching and guiding others to become more aware of their actions and in the process support more learners to becoming global citizens and environmental learners.
Lastly, we have joined Wildwood’s School challenge to compost. Now it’s your turn, let’s see how many schools we can get on board by Earth Day 2016. #compostcbe
