Earth Day is tomorrow, Wednesday April 22nd. But really shouldn't everyday be Earth Day? Our Education Ambassador Joe Donovan has organized activities throughout the week to celebrate our planet and to raise awareness on environmental protection.
Today Joe worked with grades one and three at Minto to use recycled bottles and paper to make piggy banks - teaching students to save money while reusing disposed of plastic bottles and keeping trash from ending up on the beautiful mountainsides. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
Tomorrow, and throughout the week, he will be organizing additional activities at both Minto and Penlyne Schools; activities include the planting of fruit trees at the schools and students starting seedlings in reused and repurposed plastic bottles.
We heard some rumors about the crazy new Education Ambassador that has been seen climbing down mountainsides collecting trash. We thought there might have been a method to his madness! Nice work Joe!
