There's lots of wonderful things happening in the environmental space at St Anthony's Catholic Primary School at Picton.
Amongst the school's terrific ecological actions such as planting and maintaining gardens, composting and waste management, the students have also taken part in the Wonder Recycling Rewards for Schools program. This is a fun and easy program created to recycle bread bags and tags into wonderful things like school play equipment.
Years Two and Three had their own competition which really encouraged active student participation. Parents came in to help the students pack the bread bags and tags and lots of children volunteered to help at lunch time too. With everybody’s support the school was able to collect the maximum amount that they could recycle - 25kg of bread bags and 10kg of bread tags, in record time.
St Anthony's will now be able to redeem the points collected in the program to choose some sports equipment for the school. They are also in the draw to win one of five exercise circuits, so here's keeping our fingers crossed. Well done to all the school community at St Anthony's and good luck!
