Year 5, Medina Primary School students who have been learning about recycling and waste management, participated in a poster competition for WEscef Café in promoting using less plastics and having less waste. The two winners were chosen by Helen Clark and Medina Primary School Principle Mr John Hodge. The two lucky winners both won a $100 voucher for brunch at Kent Street Deli, and I know one of the winners enjoyed taking her Nanna out to lunch before she flew back to New Zealand.
Kent Street Deli has provided the option of using plates and cutlery if sitting down in the café and will be soon providing mugs to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee in the café. If you have your own plastic containers from home, that you can still have a take away option, please bring them in and don’t forget your BYO takeaway coffee cups.
It’s great the students are learning about the impact of waste on our environment and how we can do more, with less. We hope the children’s posters remind us of how we can do things better and have a positive impact on our reduction of packaging and waste removal.
