In the middle of last term we went to the tip to explore what's in our backyard and inspire some ways we can help to maintain our wider backyard. Here is a presentation to show what we learned and some of the ways it made us feel. We are now in charge of the reducing, reusing and recycling of the school.

Tip Trip and what we learned
I'm originally from New York City but also lived in Chicago for three years where I got my Masters in Education and began my teaching career. I taught at Houghton Valley School before moving to Worser Bay School and this is my 8th year teaching. I have taught from year 6 down to New Entrants. I am passionate about literature and children's literacy as well as art.
I am leading the school in implementing a sustainable sustainability program and am the art cupboard fairy.
When I'm not at work you can find me at the SPCA playing with puppies, out and about walking my dogs, on some walking or running adventure around Wellington or scouring the dump shop to find treasure and new DIY projects.
