This unit would not be possible without the support from Kōkua Foundation (ʻĀINA In Schools) and Grow Some Good. Community partnerships play a vital role in the delivery of this unit, by adding value beyond the classroom in a meaningful and culturally appropriate way. Families will also be involved in actively supporting their children’s development and learning.
How do we use the waste we produce at school in ways that benefit our school, community, and ʻāina?
- Composting promotes sustainability by recycling organic matter, reducing the amount of waste that ends up in the landfill.
- Composting contributes to healthy soil and plants, by enriching soil biodiversity.
- Composting requires decomposers to break down organic matter into smaller particles.
- Students will understand that their voice can empower others to make sustainable choices.
