Helping Hands – Plastic Bottle Caps

0

Posted by Mrs Wembridge | Posted in Sustainability | Posted on June 27, 2018

Helping Hands project is a collaboration between disadvantaged employment support group Envision and Rotary Wyndham.

Envision is asking us to collect plastic bottle caps to help to make prosthetic hands for children in Third World countries. The bottle caps are turned into filament – a plastic thread used in 3D printers. The filament is then used to make prosthetic limbs. Bottle Caps are recyclable but different to reprocess due to their size.

Collected plastic bottle caps can be delivered to Room 6 anytime.

DID YOU KNOW?

This tram is filled with 50,000 coffee cups! Guess What? Australians use more than 50,000 take away coffee cups every half hour. That’s 1 billion a year. Watch this for more information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zF9Rd8Cw-Xc

If we lined up all the coffee cups used each year in Australia they would stretch round the world……twice!

Walk Safely to School – Friday 18 May

Posted by Mrs Wembridge | Posted in Foundation, Sustainability, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6 | Posted on May 13, 2018

On Friday 18 May it is Walk Safely to School Day
We are promoting our three Active Travel paths as a way of travelling to school safely.
Staff members will be meeting students at 8:20am at each of the three Active Paths starting points and walk with them back to school
The three starting points are:
1. Westleigh Gardens (Geelong Rd) – Mrs Wembridge, Mrs Pettigrew
2. Rushford Lane Car Park (Synnott St) – Miss Scarrott, Mrs Lacy
3. Soldiers Reserve (College Rd) – Mr Reichenbach, Gina/Riley O’Keefe, Mr Anglim

We understand that some people live too far to allow their children to walk or ride all the way, however dropping children off down the road and allowing them to walk/ride part of the way is still “getting active”!

And the Winners Are……..

Love Your Locals Day – Werribee Open Range Zoo

Posted by Mrs Wembridge | Posted in Student leadership, Sustainability, Year 5 | Posted on September 23, 2017


We became Extinction Fighters at the “Love Your Locals” day at Werribee Open Range Zoo on Thursday 7 Sep. We were one of 11 schools participating. We gave one of the new EBBs (Eastern Barred Bandicoot) a new name. We chose ‘Cherish’ because we love the EBBs. We have had the opportunity to name 3 other bandicoots over previous years – Cooryong, CoCo and Crash. The Zoo currently has 30 EBBs in their breeding pens, as well as Maremma dogs in training to protect the EBBs.

Posted by Mrs Wembridge | Posted in Sustainability, Take a stand together, Thankyou | Posted on September 3, 2017

Werribee Primary School is making a TAKE2 pledge, which is a promise to take action on climate change.

There are a lot of single-use plastic products many of us use without thinking.
You can choose to refuse plastic by selecting one of these actions:

1. Take a reusable cup for a takeaway coffee

2. Say ‘no thanks’ to plastic straws
3. Fill your own reusable bottle with water and take it with you.

4. Take a reusable container to get your takeaway.

5. Use reusable bags when grocery shopping!

Our Profile page is: https://www.take2.vic.gov.au/pledges/?profileid=612c20a2-ec6c-e711-8108-1458d05a586c

Do you have any spare change?

The Common Cents challenge is to collect 300 – 5cent pieces. Classes have been given a poster to mark off the coins collected. Money raised will support the Werribee Open Range Zoo’s Threatened Species Program for the Eastern Barred Bandicoot. Werribee Primary School has supported the Love Your Locals program for several years.


Money will be collected on Thursday 8th June.

Each completed 5 cent poster is enough money to care for an Eastern Barred Bandicoot for one month.
