Wonga Beach students have community work in the bag
WONGA Beach State School has always been known for their amazing commitment to environmental education, with the school constantly finding new ways to not only behave environmentally responsibly but creating fun and exciting ways to teach their students about the difference they can make to our world.
Recently, students have been involved in another fantastic community initiative, Boomerang Bags, as a way of reducing their carbon footprint. Staff and students recently spent time screen printing labels for the bags made by the local branch of Boomerang Bags.
Students thoroughly enjoyed not only the process of screen printing, but loved knowing that they were a part of something that would help reduce waste and also protect our amazing wild life.
The year 3/4/5 class have just recently completed a unit that looked at the role humans play in preserving animal life and so the Boomerang Bag initiative was a cause close to their hearts as they have been learning about the impact of plastic bags on marine turtles.
Students thoroughly enjoyed this project and have already signed up for another round of screen printing.
