On Tuesday 19 March, Year 3 and 4 students set off to Currawong Bush Park to participate in a whole day of activities focussing on sustainability and the environment. The students were thoroughly engaged as they rotated around four workshops that explored the concepts of recycling, biodiversity, ecology and environmental leadership. “I learnt about recycling,” said Rhys 9, “About what goes in each bin and how it gets recycled by being chopped up into little bits and then is turned into more plastic.” Sophie 8, and Samuel 9, were amazed that milk bottles are recycled to create toilet seats, and that it takes 1000 years for a glass jar to decompose. Gemma 9, loved seeing all of the Australian animals such as pythons, frogs and bats. The students had a fabulous time at the excursion, their responses when back at school clearly showing their engagement and enjoyment during the day.
