On the 8th of September the Green Team went on an excursion to Solway Primary School, which is a 5 star rated sustainable school in Victoria. The GT were very impressed by Solway’s sustainable facilities and these included their kitchen garden, water tanks and worm farms. Solway’s kitchen garden was used by foundation students to make kale chips and vegie smoothies, the worm farm helped to make vegetables grow and water tanks were used to recycle toilet water.
During the excursion Solway organised some fun and educational activities for the GT to complete. There was a treasure hunt around the school where students completed a quiz about waste from what we had learnt from the treasure hunt. The GT also played games and completed tasks on the computer about energy. They enjoyed the day and learned a lot more about waste and energy.
