Over the last two terms at our Friday Enviro Council Meetings, our students have been very busy exploring and reviewing the Five Guiding Principles for Enviroschools.  This has involved a lot of in-depth thinking and reflecting with amazing thoughtful and caring thinking shown and consultation with their peers.  The principles are Empowered Students, Sustainable Communities, Learning for Sustainability, Maori Perspectives and Respect for Diversity of People and Cultures.  Under each of these principle headings our students developed a list of the many ways we work towards achieving these within our school and community.  
The other things this wonderful group have been working on are rewarding students with Enviro Vouchers for helping the environment in our school without being asked and being great role models during the lunch times in the Junior and Middle areas, showing how Wrapper Free lunch boxes can work for everyone.  Our Enviro Vouchers are printed on reused paper too.
Our Enviro Councillors look very smart with their new badges that helps identify who they are and when they are needed to help in any way. What a special and motivated team!  Keep up the great work!
