Progressing with Plarn

Students returned from the holidays this term to the exciting news that both Coles and Woolworths will be phasing out single use plastic bags nationwide over the next year. Our plastic bag recycling and repurposing project is very timely and purposeful given the increased awareness in the public sector of the hazards plastic bags pose to the environment.

After learning how to weave plarn (plastic yarn) on round looms last term, the Titans are taking the recycling of plastic bags to the next level. So far this term, they have learned about the process of creating a rectangular wooden loom and have begun preparing to weave. These looms can be used to make a variety of products, ranging from reusable bags to beach and picnic mats.

Please continue to recycle your single use grocery bags by donating them to the “Donation Station” on the year 5-6 class veranda.
