Today is Freaky Friday at Papatoetoe West. Some very strange looking people have been spotted around the school. Do you recognise any of them?
Congratulations to the staff, students and community of Papatoetoe West School for their enthusiastic efforts to promote sustainability and create a greener school. We have been assessed and evaluated by the Enviro Schools committee and they have decided to award us the Bronze status. IT reflects our beginning steps and the progress we have already made thus far on our journey to become a leading Enviro School.
Through our recycling initiatives, edible gardens and our Garden-to-Table programme, Papatoetoe West School is forging ahead to achieve a greener future.
At Garden to table we made heaps of yummy stuff, like pakoras herb raita and my favourite is beetroot and chocolate muffins um...
We get to cook and go out into the garden, I’ve never been in the garden so far in this program.
We chop and mix, flip and turn it all over again, then we tried some of our creations.
It was delicious.
After our kai, we do the dishes.
We all need to do it because that is team work.
I imagine what we are gonna make next when we come next Friday.
I hope it will be yum!
Wednesday was a busy day at our school. As part of the BNZ "Closed for Good" programme, we were lucky to have staff from our local BNZ branch take the day out of the office to help out at Papatoetoe West. And what a great group of hard workers they were! They assembled new gardens for our Garden to Table programmes, added mulch and soil to the gardens outside the front of the hall, and painted out changing rooms for our school pool.
They even worked in the rain!
We are very grateful to them for supporting our school and are extremely happy with the results of their efforts.
