Education for Sustainable Development
Tyndall Park students have been helping the community stay Green! In the fall of 2015, students planted potatoes in our outdoor flower boxes and were able to harvest and donate 113 lbs. of the starchy veggie to Winnipeg Harvest during the Thanksgiving holiday! Our Enviro-Kids have been active again this year, helping to collect and recycle items from classrooms and the Lunch Program. Next year, we are planning to pilot our Kompost-Kids program that will collect compostables from the Lunch Program and take them out to our outdoor compost bin.
Students in Grade 6 initiated a battery recycling program that ran during the month of April. The entire school brought in used batteries and that would be taken by Grade 6 students to a recycling facility for proper disposal. An excess of 700 batteries were collected and kept from ending up in a landfill! Good work students!
Once again Tyndall Park students have been filling out plastic bag recycling bins located around the school. As of the end of April, over 2000 bags were collected!
This year our ESD committee purchased paint and stain so the students at Tyndall Park could paint their grade level garden boxes. All grade levels participated from Nursery to grade 6 and we came up with some great designs that add a little bit of colour to the front of our school. Students worked together to plant various flowers in the garden boxes. They all had a fantastic time planting and painting! Stay tuned for more to come from your Tyndall Park ESD committee.
