Counting the cost of waste

This year Mater Christi has been working towards becoming a ‘Waste Wise School’. This has involved creating environmentally friendly policies and rules as to how rubbish is collected and reused and recycled.

Recently Science teacher, Mrs Ziegelaar and some of the Year 6s got down and dirty, helping to complete a Waste Audit to see what sort of rubbish was being thrown away, and what waste might be recycled.

While it was a rather messy affair, it sure opened everyone’s eyes to how much rubbish is thrown away needlessly!

Keep watching for more environmentally friendly initiatives at Mater Christi.
