Another successful fair trade bake sale, all sold out in half an hour! Great effort team!
Now that MAC is a fair trade school, we organise regular fair trade events, to keep raising awareness, support fair trade farmers and their communities and enjoy yummy safe food.
Team Green is having a Fair Trade Bake Sale
on Friday 18th November at lunchtime in the quad.
There will be: Ice chocolate, Honey comb pizza, Cookies, Muffins, Banana Cake, Brownies and Fairy Bread, all containing at least one fair trade ingredient. Mmmmm…

There were 14 entries in the Recycling art competition, from colorful to scary, small or large, skillful or put together in 2 minutes! With an outstanding participation of Roy, the winning house is Roy, followed by Pisa, Iron and Barker.
The winning whanau is PVA with its “Fancy Floral Recycled Art” and won organic fair trade chocolates to share and celebrate and the Team Green Trophy!
Team Green is organising the 2016 Recycling Art Competition at Mount Aspiring College.
Each whanau is invited to submit an artwork made out of rubbish or recycled materials. Judges will consider artistic, technique and sustainability value of the creations.
Entries are due on Tuesday 20th September 2016. It is a house competition so get in there and meet the criterias! Good luck!
Recycling phones is important because:
- handsets that are still operational will be sold overseas, reducing the demand for new handsets and associated environmental impacts of their manufacture
- the unwanted phones are diverted from landfill
- phones contain valuable materials that can be reused when dismantled.
To protect your data, just perform a factory reset before you drop it in the box.
The school will continue to support and promote Fair Trade because this scheme has the potential to lift millions of people out of poverty, improving their ability to work, eat, earn a decent wage and provide education for their children. Buying fair trade products is one small step that everyone can take to improve the lives of others, making the world a fairer place.
3 bin types
What to recycle
If we divert a third of rubbish to the recycling, we’ll save $2100 per year.
Just put rubbish in the right bin!
On our way to became a fair trade school, we’ve organised a fair trade bake sale today. Each of us baked some goodies with at least one fair trade ingredient. Success ! It was delicious and hugely popular. We’ll do it again!
We raised $160 to purchase prices for the winners of future Team Green competition planned for later this year
Aspiring Conversations organisers kindly donated two tickets to attend Tim Flannery’s event to students presenting the best questions. While Grace Green and Gary Poilvert questions were chosen, none of them could attend and were represented instead by Emily Knoesen and Johnny Brebner, both highly interested in the talk.
The talk is summarized here. We learnt that there is hope, now that technologies exists, goverments have signed a strong agreement and everyone starts putting the subject at the top of their agenda…
Tim Flannery books “We are the weather makers” and the brand new “Atmosphere of Hope” are both available at the college library.
