Look what Team Green has negotiated with the very kind Canteen ladies!
It’s a win for you (cheaper), a win for the environment (no-throw-away cup), a win for the canteen (less cups to buy). Enjoy!
In 2016, we earn 32 trees from our recycling effort, up one tree from previous years. We have started monitoring precisely so we can see our progress.
And so we can analyse that a lot of recycling has happened in the 3rd and 4th term of 2016.
In 2017, paper recycling has definitely reduced and this is coherent considering the effort our school is doing to become paperless.
Cardboard and plastic recycling are more consistent in 2017. Let’s keep the recycling effort up!
We will try and get the data for the rubbish.
We’ll get more solar panels for our school if we win a Trustpower community award. So please nominate us! Please fill in that form http://www.waitaki.govt.nz/our-district/Documents/Trustpower%20Entry%20Form%20-%202017.pdf
WIN for the taste-buds and the mood!
WIN for the farmers who produce it and the planet!
WIN for our Solar Panels funds!

MAC Earth Hour will be tomorrow period 5. Please turn off all unnecessary lights and electric devices. Team Green members will go around the school and switch off the lights at the start of the period.
This Earth Hour is important as it is the International Earth Hour on Saturday from 8.30 to 9.30pm so it is the occasion to make a difference globally www.earthhour.org
Please empty the classroom red crates into the yellow recycling bins on the campus.
- Paper (must be clean)
- Cardboard (flattened)
- Empty glass bottles
- Empty plastic containers with a number on the base (1-7)
- Aluminium cans and clean tin cans
Basically recycling is dry and clean.
These can’t be recycled:
- Food scraps
- Glad wrap
- Tin foil & foil bags
- Plastic wrappers
- Yogurt pottles
- Empty drink boxes (eg. Up and Go)
- Plastic bags
- Noodle & soup containers
- Milkshake and hot chip cups
- Used tissues, canteen napkins
So all these go in the grey or blue rubbish bins.
This is what we currently find in the recycling bins: dirty plastic glass, straws, gladwrap, dirty paper… we can do better! Please stop putting rubbish in the recycling!
Only pigs litter. It’s disgusting! So put your rubbish in your lunchbox, pocket or bin near you, or you are a pig.
Litter flies, litter floats, litter kills.
An estimated 100 000 marine mammals and turtles are killed by plastic litter every year around the world. And approximately 1 million sea birds also die from plastic!
So please don’t litter!
Recycling saves money, is respectful and saves the environment.
So pick up your rubbish and recycle. Thank you!
Delicious baking from our team yesterday! We raised $222.60 in just one lunchtime! Using fair trade ingredients, our baking benefits the farmers, their families and communities.
We keep this money on an account to buy more solar panels for our college!
WIN for the taste-buds ~ WIN for the growers ~ WIN for MAC!
