SHC Composting Initiative - Mana Whenua

30 April  From today a composting system has been implemented to reduce the amount of food waste we send to landfills.  To do this, the staff room and form classes each have a bucket that will be used as a composting bin.

This initiative relates back to our school values by:

  • putting the right food scraps in the bins we individually show our school value of Mana Whenua - a heart for the land and environment that we live in; and
  • having this system in SHC, we as a school also show Mana Whenua in doing our part to reduce the impact of waste in the environment.

Thank you to Ms Booker and the students who are working hard to get everyone committed to this initiative (though more volunteers are needed , so please see Ms Booker if you would like to be a team member).
