Waste Management Plan

Today we buddied up with other students in our class and created a presentation about what we think is the most sustainable way to reduce the rubbish we make at school, but also ways we could save and decrease the amount of money we spend each year just to get rid of our rubbish. 

Down below is the presentation me and my partner Misimoa ( have completed.

Sustainable Ways To Dispose Rubbish At T.P.S

This week we have integrated writing and inquiry together, so we were put into groups and given projects to complete related to our new topic focus 'Rubbish'. 
In this task we all had to find out what ways we could make disposing rubbish sustainable.
Here is my idea and also steps on how it may be completed.

Having Colour Coded Bins In Our School

  1. Firstly we will need to find out how much it will coast to buy the types of rubbish bins we need e.g recycling bin-green, paper bin -red. etc. 
  2. Then we will also need to find suitable ways to fundraise (if need) the money needed to purchase the rubbish bins that we are most likely to use in our school.
  3. When we have fundraised enough, we will need to order the bins and then find places to place them. In this case I believe that they should be where people seam to litter the most.
  4. Finally, when our bins are placed where we have decided to place them, we should have an announcer who speaks over the speaker reminding/telling the students 5 minutes before the bell rings, to use but also pick up the rubbish around.

Tuakana Teina

During our day being budded up with younger students from room 4, we wrote a poem together about  recycling. 
Here is the poem that me and my buddy Adien have written.

R-educing rubbish

Y-ours and My lives, SO

Tuakana Teina

Lost Through Wonders.

This week we had to sit a writing sample test. We were told by our teacher to finish it of and blog our writing sample. Here is my finished product. I hope you like reading my writing sample

I heard scratching but I couldn't see through the darkness...

Nothing but the stars and the moon that shone in the night. Taking each step which we hoped led us to our destination my back aches while holding our supplies which I call our survival kit.
“Ahhh I'm so tired can we stop now?” Cecilia mourns, her eyes which look like they could shut any minute now
“No we must keep going and we’ll be there soon.” I say it with regret knowing that I didn't know my way around here, I just made a promise that was about to be broken.  
Lifting up each boot which protected my feet, I look around and there is completely nothing I can see. Nothing but Trees, leaves, rubbish and the sound of birds and owls howling in the dark night. I glimpse around and all I see is a great big field filled with grass ‘Yay!’

We finally decide to stop, we pitch our tent and off we doze with a dreadful sleep. With only our jackets and the picnic cloth to cover us, I could feel the breeze of the wind glide through my clothes and push my skin which was now covered with goosebumps, we close our eyes and off we were in a world of peace and silence.

Being interrupted and woken up by an unusual sound I get up and notice that Cecilia isn't there. I panic, my heart skips a beat and my mind goes on multiple journeys on 5 different planet.
“Cecilia, are you there?” My voice cracks, it sounds as if I were trying to squeal.
9 seconds later there's still no reply so I call out to her again
“Cecilia, are you there?”
15 minutes and she's still not back so I fetched for the torch that hung from the side of my backpack and off I go on a hunt for Cecilia.
‘I hope she's alright’
‘I wonder where she is’
I start to panic even more and now my heart feels like its skipping two beats. My ears lift a little hearing that weird, strange sound again and as every step I take I the noise gets louder and Louder and LOUDER! I heard scratching but couldn't see through the darkness...
