Westbourne Grammar Recycling
My school helps the environment in many different ways. Each class in every level has an environmental member who at playlunch and lunch collects things such as apple and pear cores and things alike, to put into the worm farm bins. The worm farm bin is a big wooden box that has worms in it. We feed them the unwanted, left over food that the class has collected. The environmental member also waters plants, collects rubbish off the ground, looks after the veggies that our school grows and makes sure everything is clean.
At our school, we also have a variety of bins that different rubbish goes into, such as the red bin which chip packets and similar kinds of things go into. There is also the blue bin for plastic and the yellow bin for all the cans and bottles. Each class also has a recycling bin that reusable paper goes into. Every Friday, the grades 6's collect the bins and leave it to be picked up by the people who recycle it.
We also have an Environmental Day. On that day you're not allowed to bring any rubbish or anything that needs to be thrown out. For that day's playlunch and lunch, your teacher will come around and give you a ticket with your name on it if you have no rubbish. At the end of the day we put the tickets in a hat and draw one out from each class. Whoever has their name pulled out wins a prize. The teacher who organizes this day is great and often comes over to the classrooms to teach us about the environment. It's fantastic because we learn a lot about the environment but in a fun way.
