How do we care for our environment at Allenton School?
- Paper Recycling
We all have green recycling bins in our classrooms. We put cardboard and paper in these. We make sure that we have used paper on both sides before we recycle it. We had a spot check to see that we were using our recycling bins correctly, and Room 2, 7 and 15 got to plant some special native plants that had come from "Paper from Trees" because they had sorted their recycling so well. Ka pai to those classes for being careful about what they put in their recycling bin. Here is a picture of some Room 2 students with the plants they get to plant.
- Fonterra Milk Carton Recycling
We enjoy our milk on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We learn how to fold our cartons so they don't take up much space and put them in the light blue wheelie bins you see in our corridors. Look at the poster and link below to find out what happens after that......
