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.
