Nature Club – Ideas into Action

Bottle Tops Piggy Banks

The Recycling committee decided to give the Garrahan bottle top collection a twist.

They made piggy banks out of five litre water bottles and placed them in every classroom.

They also reminded the whole school about the campaign.


They took turns to empty the piggy banks into the big containers.



Dog Droppings Bag Dispensers

Every teacher knows that dog droppings in the classroom can be a problem!!

Inspired by the Puntocan bag dispensers we had seen in other neighbourhoods, we proposed that the school would install one to keep our school area clean. We also decided to implement this idea with a recycling spirit and made a dispenser of our own! We asked the whole school to contribute with supermarket bags brought from home.

Recycled Brooms

Last year, with the Ecology Team, we started making these brooms to help keep the classrooms clean.

This year we checked how many of them were in good shape and made new ones to make sure every class had one.
