Glenfield College is now a Bronze Enviro-school!
Thanks to the hard work of our students and staff, we are now a Bronze Enviro-school. We are on the first step of what will be a journey that will take several years and involve a slow, but developing change in the way we relate to our environment in the school and beyond. Pictured above is Enviro-schools’ Bridget Glasgow with members of the sustainability group. So far we have started renovating the school gardens with the help of the Kaipatiki Project staff and plant resources, taken responsibility for the maintenance of a section of the Kaipatiki Reserve, introduced roadside recycling into the school and started “Waicare” water testing of the local stream. Future efforts will be to start composting and wormeries. We were awarded funds by the council to buy a shredder/chipper this year so this will help with composting initiative. Please pass the message on that we are now officially… an ENVIRO-SCHOOL.
