Council heeds bin call
ECO-FRIENDLY Dalkeith Primary School Year 6 students successfully lobbied the City of Nedlands for more school recycling bins to prepare for National Recycling Week from November 9-15. Harry Miller, Jules Bertolino, Mark Renner and Sol Alder crunched the numbers to determine that the school needed more recycling bins to cope with rubbish from about 300 students who ate their lunch on the veranda. “This has been a great teamwork challenge which will help our school community recycle better,” Harry said. Nedlands waste minimisation co-ordinator Chaminda Mendis also supplied the school with stickers detailing exactly what rubbish could be recycled. Dalkeith Primary School deputy principal Tamara Doig said the Challenge Based Learning program inspired the students to implement positive changes.
