On Wednesday the 11th of November the Grade 3-6’s had their performance evening. Grade 3C performed and danced to two songs; Kris Kros – Jump, Jump and Walk The Dinosaur (from Ice Age). It was a fantastic performance with everyone pulling together and doing a great job on the night. It was a real team effort with everybody working hard as a group. Also well done to all the students who helped others to learn the steps who were away for some rehearsals. Thanks very much to Bec for teaching us all the moves and Miss Curtain for organising the whole night. It was also great to see all the other students perform, we certainly have a very talented bunch of students at Barwon Heads Primary School!
What was your favourite part of the night?
Did you know that every year the Barwon Heads community uses over 100,000 plastic bags?
Some of these bags make their way into our rivers and waterways and can cause damage to our local bird life and marine life.
A few years ago the let our sea be plastic bag free was launched with the logo designed by students at this school and the jute bags.
This program reduced plastic bag usage by 25% in Barwon Heads and was recognised in this years Landcare awards, receiving the Junior Landcare Award.
The next step in this project is to try and further reduce the amount of plastic bags we use is launching these borrow and bring back bags.
Launch of “Borrow and Bring Back” Community Shopping Bags this Friday at Assembly
Thanks to all the fantastic efforts of a number of people within the community, 450 bags are now ready to be unleashed into Barwon Heads.
Made from recycled material, the local bag share scheme “Borrow and Bring Back” relies on the community returning the borrowed bags on their next visit. Bags are available to borrow at IGA, the school office, BH News-agency & Starfish Bakery. “Bring back” locations include BH Pharmacy and all pick up points.
Education and convenience is the key to change. Through this project we aim to keep the message alive within the town.
So next time you go shopping and forget your reusable bags, please take one and return it to one of our locations.
