This week our Year 2 class went on our excursion. Miss T, Mr L and our other Mr L have written a little about it.
On Wednesday September 19th, the Year 2 class went to Red Hill Waste Management Facility. Jenny, our tour guide, took us for a tour of the facility. We had a look at landfill cells which are holes dug in the ground and lined with plastic. Then the rubbish is put in there. We learnt how much rubbish we produce in one year. We produce the weight of a giraffe in rubbish each. That is a lot of rubbish. We went past a mulching machine where they put green waste (tree branches etc) and when it comes out it is mulch. Then we did 'recycled' art with Jenny in the classroom that they have. Some people won a ruler each and others got a sharpener. There were blue and green ones to choose from.
After we finished our art and other activities, we got back on the bus and went to Noble Falls for lunch. There was a playground and we got to play on the equipment. Mrs. M got five kids at a time and took them over to look at the waterfall. It was a great day and everybody had lots of fun.
