The Waste Wise Kids schools programme has been developed alongside early learning educators, to teach children aged 4-12 years old about waste, recycling and sustainability. Taught within the classroom, it focuses on educating children about the waste hierarchy and its impact on the environment in a fun, easy to understand way including an on-site presentation with teachers notes, repurposing tasks, competitions, rewards chart and recycled handouts.
The school can choose to have a Waste Wise Kids presenter, or the teacher can use our lesson plans using the Waste Wise Kids educational material provided.
The Waste Wise Kids programme promotes educational outcomes, pupil engagement, working as a team and boosts motivation through building confidence, friendships and instilling a sense of leadership that these young children, through their actions, can have a hugely positive impact on the environment in the future. Your whole school can also benefit by improving the school environment with creative and engaging projects around littering, composting, repurposing items and recycling.
