27 March 2018
The children were very excited about our Earth Hour celebration. Many of the children participated in a variety of learning engagements that were enabling them to develop a deeper understanding about the need to take care of our home, Planet Earth.
It is events such as Earth Hour that allow us to reflect on our own actions. At Wu Kai Sha Kindergarten, we have been reflecting on how we can contribute to the care of our planet. We are aware that many organisations around the world are taking action to reduce their use of plastic. This year we would like to make a pledge to eliminate the use of unnecessary ‘single-use plastic’ within our school. We aim to have this in place by 22nd April 2018.
These are some of the actions we are taking to eliminate the use of unnecessary single-use plastic with the school:
No plastic straws used for drinking or art work
No plastic plates, cups and cutlery
No single use plastic bags and zip lock bags
No balloons for craft projects
We would like to invite you to join our aim and also make a pledge to eliminate the use of unnecessary ‘single-use plastic’. Please exchange your child’s zip lock snack bag for a washable cloth bag and plastic spoons or forks to a metal spoon or fork.
I really hope you will join us in creating a single-use plastic free environment for our children.
