On the sustainability train
Term 2 has been a busy and exciting term for our Climate Canons. Café 135 got on board the sustainability train by switching out plastic cutlery for wooden ones, replacing plastic cups for biodegradable ones for our jelly and collecting bread bags. The Breakfast Club has been collecting bread tags and bottle caps and Student Ministry will be donating them to Lids for kids and Wheelchairs for kids. The staff have a BRAD (Banish Recycling And Disposal Program) recycling corner in the staffroom. The College is collecting plastic and cans for the Containers for Change program. We designed a logo (as seen above, created by the talented Climate Canon Nadine Retallack, Year 8) and a badge for the Climate Canons to be more recognisable around the College. And our informative days of World Turtle Day and Laudato Si' Week in May and World Environment Day and World Oceans Day in June which included a photography competition were a big success. Finishing up the term, the students participated in a planning session, where they rolled up their sleeves to manage our Containers for Change program and planned for Term 3.
Remember, members of the College community can donate their earnings from Containers for Change to the College and Climate Canons to support sustainability projects at the College by using the St Norbert College code: see PDF below.
If students would like to join the Climate Canons they can email Miss Pisconeri email@example.com. We look forward to the College’s ongoing support in Term 3 and beyond and the Climate Canons are eager to continue to educate and enact on sustainability.
