What a lot of rubbish
Today the whole school hit the streets for our Rubbish-a-thon. The PTA’s major fundraiser for Term 3 was more than a fundraiser.
It was a brilliant learning opportunity for all of our children. Being part of a community means taking responsibility for that community. The New Zealand Curriculum ranks 'participating and contributing' very highly (is is one of the key competencies which we are required to develop in our children) Follow this Ministry of Education link to see how our rubbish learning experience is all about our new curriculum
The whole school spread out to cover our ‘home zone’ and give it a big spring clean. We returned with over ten bins of rubbish, and got lots of thanks from our neighbours along the way.
