The BC Enviro Group have been working with Ross Martin, the Auckland Council Sustainable Schools advisor, to sort out the BC rubbish from one day in the whole school.We sorted it into: recyclables (plastic bottles, aluminium cans), landfill, compostable, dangerous/ E-waste, soft plastic and other.
The Enviro Group found that we have a lot of recyclable rubbish and a lot of compostable that could be diverted from landfill.The hope is to set up a better rubbish system at school to reduce the amount that goes to landfill and then do another audit later in the year.
Saving the planet and saving the school money!

INTERNATIONAL HOST FAMILIES NEEDED
Birkenhead College is seeking local families to host International Students for 2023.
We are looking forward to hosting overseas students once again at the school. An integral part of their NZ stay is to live with a local family and participate in family life, which is an important aspect of the total student experience.
International students also offer valuable cultural interaction for you and your family - many families have made lifelong friends as a result of hosting!
Host families are asked to provide a room, three meals a day, Wi-Fi connection and to assist with transport from time to time, for which $300 per week will be paid. All members of the household aged 18 years and older are required to complete a Police Vet check via the school.

Nataliya Novak or phone 09 483 9039, Ext 838.
