National Recycling Week 2021 
A celebration of Aussie recycling

The Emanuel School Community is encouraged to celebrate recycling their way!

Planet Ark’s National Recycling Week is celebrating a quarter century of helping Australians recycle right from Monday 8 November 2021 – Sunday 14 November 2021, by asking Australians to celebrate recycling in a way that is meaningful to them. Whether that is by hosting or joining a recycling themed event, brushing up on your recycling knowledge or discovering new tricks to cut down on waste and improve recycling and reuse, it’s all about celebrating the important role recycling plays in our lives.

This week, The Sustainability Va’Ad and myself organised a variety of activities for students to take part in to mark National Recycling Week.

It’s vital that we all do our bit to help maintain our planet and actively seek areas where we can make small, manageable changes in our daily lives to recycle, re-use and reduce our waste. Students have been invited to create an artwork made from recycled/repurposed materials at home and submit a photo of their masterpiece to be judged by Eytan Messiah, Chrystal Rimmer and myself and we can’t wait to see what they come up with.
