The food waste competition is still up and firing! So far this term Clayton North has the smallest total being 200 grams for their 1 night stay, Diamond Creek had only 3 kilograms across their 4 days here and Leongatha coming in with 3.8 kilograms across their 5 days at Woorabinda. Can anyone catch Tyabb with 1.8 kilograms across the week?
At Woorabinda we keep track of the amount of food waste each group throws out each week. Limiting food waste is something that is taught/encouraged throughout the week, with the aim of minimising the amount of waste across the week. Well done to Tyabb Primary as our overall current leader for the year. Will someone beat them??
Recently Woorabinda was lucky enough to have John and Erin from Bug Blitz come in and teach us all about the world of bugs. We were able to learn about different bugs such as spiders and scorpions. Fun fact: There are 10-30 million species of bugs/creatures in the world and 95% of them are invertebrates.
We're back for another year. Our focus as always is the kids. We've already had a few schools in, as well as some working bees to keep developing and improving Woorabinda to give the kids the best experience possible. The outdoor enclosure has been getting a big revamp with everyone chipping in to help build the new turtle pond. It will look great when it's all done.
