In response to the latest COVID-19 advice, face-to-face School Waste Activity Days have been cancelled. The WMRC Community & Education Team is currently developing some online materials suitable for a classroom setting, due for delivery later this year. Watch this space! In the meantime, why not check out our latest recruit in the war on waste – Billy the Banana Peel.
Looking for a high energy, interactive waste prevention program filled with age-appropriate activities for kids in Years 1-6? Look no further than WMRC’s Waste Activity Days!
The activities aim to raise awareness of how to avoid, reduce or recycle common waste items in a fun and interactive way. Designed to run the length of a school day, targeting a year group per period, students are divided into small groups and rotated through a suite of activity stations. Open to primary schools located in our Member Councils:Town of Claremont, Town of Cottesloe, Town of Mosman Park, Shire of Peppermint Grove and City of Subiaco, as well as in our Participating Council – Town of Cambridge.
Do staff and students find it beneficial?
“It was thoroughly enjoyed by all! Everyone, including staff have been regaling the things they have learnt today. Plus, they have been complimenting me on a job well done – it’s you who did all the hard yakka!” -Teacher, Mosman Park Primary School-
