Waste Wise Competition

Further to our announcement last week of Kapinara winning last terms Waste wise competition, the Year 5 students were present with prizes by Amanda Elizabeth, “The Shark Lady”, who gave a very interesting and entertaining talk about sharks and her work as a marine conservationist. She obviously reinforced the message of plastics in our ocean as one of the main threats to marine life. Each student got a MyEarth sandwich wrap ethically made in India, a Waste Wise School Onya bag which could be scrunched up small and attached to a school bag and a Waste Wise School pencil.  Sue Jonklaas
