Recycing Trip

Dear Parents/Caregivers


Room 7 and 1 have been learning about how we can reduce, reuse and recycle rubbish. To learn about what happens to all our recycling, on Wednesday the 11 of June Rooms 7 and 1 are going on a trip to the Awapuni Resource Recovery Park (Palmerston North). We will be leaving school by bus at 9:15am and then we will be returning by approximately 1pm. We will require some parent helps to come along to provide supervision. Unfortunately it will not be appropriate for pre schoolers to come on this trip. Thank you very much for your support.

The cost of the trip will be $5.

 Your child will need to have the following items for the trip:

-School bag

-Lunch and drink bottle

-A warm jersey

-Covered shoes (no jandals or sandals)

Kind Regards
Kirsty Lynch and Debbie Turner
