Working with WOW in 2019
During Term 1 and 2, we are trialing working intensively with a small number of selected school sites. Other WOW support will be available, but please book asap for any on-site requests as Term 1 is almost fully booked.
Wipe Out Waste (WOW) is a South Australian state-wide program to assist all sites, from pre-school to year 12, which supports learning about and reducing waste in a whole of school community approach.
WOW is funded by Green Industries SA and delivered by KESAB environmental solutions.
Resource Rhymes is a volunteer facilitated schools competition auspiced by Sustainable Communities SA.
The 10 week school competition is all about creating songs, raps or poems about better resource use in South Australia. This year the theme is WASTE.
These projects will encourage students to research current affairs, collaborate, build relationships, creatively express themselves, gain confidence and become engaged in their local community.
