Through the Eyes of an Educator: Wipe Out Waste for Term 2

Through the Eyes of an Educator: Wipe Out Waste for Term 2
3
Aug

I have had a lot of fun working both in the Wipe Out Waste mobile classroom and in school classrooms to spread the word on how to Wipe Out Waste!

Wipe Out Waste is a primary school program that raises awareness and develops students’ understanding of how they can reduce, reuse, recycle and rethink when it comes to the products we buy and the waste we create. We also cover topics on sustainability such as composting and renewable energy. The lessons are delivered through interactive discussion and fun activities. We also enjoy taking along the mobile classroom to community events as it is an interactive and novel way to draw the communities attention to the issue of waste management and what we can all do to help.

I was able to capture some of these moments to share with you!
