Year 4 Eco Warriors


​This semester, as part of the new Humanities & Social Science (HASS) unit, students explored their local council.  They looked at the different services the council provides in the local community and how they deal with waste sustainably.

The students had an exciting visit from Ms Amy Yates, Environmental Officer from Mareeba Shire Council.  Ms Yates came into the classroom to share some 'stinky' information about where our rubbish actually goes. 

Students found this 'stinky' information not only fascinating but also informative, and had many very clever questions for Ms Yates.  Students then devised their own sustainable plan of action for waste in their own classroom.  We certainly have a fantastic group of eco-warriors to save our planet!
