1. How our school contributes Our school uses water wisely. We are currently trying to achieve our second and third star to prove that our school is sustainable. Each year level has done a variety of activities on the big issue ‘Water conservation’. We have learnt things that will preserve our natural water source. Hopefully this will help people think twice before wasting our precious water source.
Grade Preps! The grade preps have done the following: Created a 3D healthy and unhealthy environment in investigations. Made signs – no littering, Save water etc. Have watered plants with recycled water See the Pictures --
Grade 1’s Grade 1’s have had many discussions about water in particular when cleaning paint brushes, rather than leaving the water running. Students have been encouraged to fill a small bucket and let the brushes soak, in an effort to save water. See pictures →
Grade 1’s washing paint brushes in a tub of water instead of rinsing it under a tap
Grade 2’s The grade 2’s have asked themselves during discovery learning ‘How do we look after our environment?’ Students investigate the ways individuals, families, groups and communities can work to improve their environment. Learnt about different habitats and the natural resources required for continued survival of species, including shelter, water, food. Investigated different aquatic environments and how humans impact on these. See pictures →
Grade 2 discussion mind map on how to ‘look after the environment’
Grade 3’s ‘ What happens if a resource is used up, destroyed or polluted?’ ‘How can we make a positive impact on sustainability issues in our community?’ Grade 3’s have been asked to come up with answers in their discussion. Have planted flowers and we have monitors that collect water from the buckets under the taps each day just before lunch Pond walk to look at ways to help look after our local environment Children are encouraged to bring in water bottles from home See pictures →See pictures →
