PARENT HELPER NOTICE
2 March 2016
Thank you for your support with our ongoing Enviroschool actions.
Next week (Monday 7 March – Friday 11 March) every child at BBPS will visit an onsite Environmental caravan, at a cost of $2.50 each, to raise their awareness of environmental issues. Payment can be made through the office or online via our website.
We have 6 key exhibits within the Tread Lightly Caravan programme, 3 housed within the caravan and three outside if the weather is fine or in a classroom / hall / suitable space if the weather is too wet or windy.
We have a teacher travelling with the Tread Lightly Caravan and have one based with the E-waste exhibit outside and one inside monitoring the computer exhibits.
In the past we have found that the children generally do get more ‘out of’ each exhibit if there is a keen enthusiastic adult supervising (mainly the powerbike), and also prompting and asking the right questions.
The Junior classes require a minimum of 5 parent helpers and the Middle/Senior classes need 4 parent helpers to manage the stations and to optimise the students learning within the caravan.
Please register your interest with your class teacher as soon as possible.
