07 Nov 2019

 

VS shared their understanding of how many plastic packets were thrown away during snack time in school, during the month of October alone. According to their calculations, 9,200 items are thrown out monthly. They then shared the many creative ways they recycled things. They made toys, artwork, sun catchers and a tyre seat to prevent waste from ending up in landfills and the ocean.

A second segment explained what Armistice Day is. Armistice Day marks the end of World War I as an agreement was made to stop fighting on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. In tribute to those that laid down their lives, the poem, ‘In Flanders Field’ was recited.
