Zero Waste Lunch Boxes

For the past two weeks we have been learning about zero waste lunch boxes.  we collected all of our rubbish from one week and sorted it into piles.  We graphed our results.  The most rubbish we had was Glad-wrap.  The next biggest pile we had was chippie wrappers. 
We want to be the best class at reducing our rubbish.  We talked about eating fresh and healthy to help reduce our rubbish.  We talked about using containers to put our food into instead of gladwrap.  We talked about having cool lunchboxes with lots of compartments. We talked about buying in bulk which not only saves rubbish but also money!!!
Thanks to Anna Murphy from Zero Waste for coming in and helping us.
thanks also to the families that are helping us.  We already have several children who have Zero Waste in their lunchboxes.  Outstanding.

Harold the giraffe from the Life Education Trust

Harold the Giraffe came to visit Glenbervie School.  We told him all about foods for energy and foods.  We know foods that we need to eat everyday, only sometimes or only as a snack.  Thanks Harold!  We had lots of fun.

Ry Eats a Rainbow

Ry has been an inspiration during our healthy eating unit.  He eats an entire rainbow of colours just about everyday.  Ry knows that lots of colours means he is getting a balanced diet with lots of nutrients.  He knows that a balanced diet gives him energy to think, learn, play and grow.  Way to go Ry!!!
