Mount Aspiring College has earned 32 trees in 2016 thanks to our paper and cardboard recycling. We planted 16 on Friday lunchtime.
Thank you to the senior students who volunteered, to the trees sponsor Ziptrek Ecotours, to Te Kakano for growing them and to Paper4Trees for organising this scheme.
And Thank You everyone for recycling!
We will plant the other trees next year in a school wide event -we need 44 trees to have one per whanau for this event.
Every last Friday of the month during period 5 is MAC Earth Hour.
Please make sure to turn off the lights and unnecessary equipment. We will go around the classes to remind you!
We have watched the college energy counter slow down during Earth Hour and calculated that we save $20 each time. The money saved goes towards more solar panels.
More solar panels, more savings…
And it helps the planet too!
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.
Last Thursday we walked down to the Lake to meet the Touchstone project organizers and discuss how we will help. We plan to take regular samples from two outlets near our college and get them to be tested to create a database of knowledge of the lake quality.
And we are in the newspaper here!
We really enjoyed the Dangerous Song performance during the Festival of Colour.

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
