Life Education
We are having a great time visiting Harold and talking about positive emotions and relationships with others.

Every Friday afternoon we are

Learning new vocabulary such as marine biologist, leather jackets & nudibranch!

At 11 am and 1.35 pm we have been going out to collect any litter.
It is really great to see there is less rubbish!

We also sent an email to the South Taranaki District Council

Elodie from the Council emailed us back:
For year 2016 /17, we disposed of 7,823 tonnes of general waste.

Room 2 and Room 3 collected the rubbish from the red bins.
We counted the rubbish. We will show you our results soon too.
Our goal is to now find some ways to reduce
the rubbish put into the bins at school.
