Exciting opportunity for students interested in environmental issues!

Our students gardening today
Hi Parents and Students in Tautoru,

Z are holding an annual Safety Day in late November. They would like us to help them to understand more about reducing waste...

Message from Emily Watt, "This is an event that brings 600 Z staff and friends together to share lessons about our company’s values and changes we can make in our lives to benefit people and the planet.
We’re aiming to make our event a Zero Waste event this year, and use the day to inspire our staff and guests to continue to reduce their waste. We’ve been looking for an inspiring speaker/s to help get the message across, and wondered if some of your students would be able to help? As a Zero Waste school, and champions of the plastic bag free peninsula, we can’t think of better ambassadors and educators for our guests!"

Students will create a short, fun video (made by a professional company) with the students explaining the importance of recycling and how to do it and urging people to do better."

If you would like to be part of the video and are passionate about recycling and environmental issues, then please apply to be part of this event.

Please write to Nicola and explain:
1. Why you would like to be part of this?
2. What environmental issues are you passionate about?
3. What skills can you bring?

Applications need to be in by Tuesday 25th October.

Many thanks,



  1. What a fantastic opportunity for your students! A professional video! An opportunity to share about your zero waste program at your school (which I think is incredibly fantastic!) I am sure that you will get lots and lots of students wanting to be involved in this and I can't wait to see what your students come up with.
