Sustainability and Science Week at Glendale PS

With the countdown to National Science Week well on the way I thought Iā€™d take this opportunity to remind the Glendale Community about some important projects we have running at Glendale PS.

We recycle household batteries (please NO car batteries), Oral Care Products and Packaging, Dishwashing Detergent and Dishwashing Tablets Soft Packaging and Air Deodorising Cans and plug-ins, plastic bread ties (non-wire ones) and clean Bras (we recycle these to women in need in third world countries). These can all be placed in bins in the old office area.

The students in Pre-Primary and Year 1 will be involved in setting up the School Worm Farm and learn about the wonderful job worms do in recycling nutrients. Students in years 2 and 3 will have a presentation on packing sustainable lunches (parents are most welcome to join their children for this exciting talk). The students in years 4 and 5 will have an incursion on the 3 Bin System of waste disposal, so they should be able to inform you on what goes into each bin and how we can reduce our waste stream. Our year 6 students will have a talk on reducing single use plastic. There will be prizes for the students who do the best in the Science Week Quiz.
