Sustainability- environment

Danielle Howton
Honeywood Primary School

The student councillors discussed the importance of recycling to help maintain a clean environment in order for everyone to enjoy being active in the outdoors.

A sustainability program was introduced and gradually over the year different forms of recycling have been implemented into the school.

The student councillors promote the different forms of recycling via a weekly public announcement over the PA to all classes.

Connect is also used to advertise to the community the different types of recycling we have introduced in the school.

A designated area outside the front office is utilised for collection of recycling materials.

Not only does this reduce waste in the environment it teaches the students the importance of caring for our environment to enable us to have areas to swim, walk etc.

Honeywood Primary School is an accrediated Waste Wise School.

I'm glad Honeyood is involved in Waste Wise as well and Your Move. Your students are clearly on the way to being upstanding environmental citizens! At this stage though I can't give you any YM points as the newsletter story doesn't relate directly to active travel.
