The Zero Waste Education (ZWE) programme has
been educating children years 1-8 about the topic of sustainable resource use
since 1993. Ruapehu District Council
supports the delivery of this education at the following primary schools: Kaitieke,
Manunui, Matiere, National Park, Ngakonui, Te Kura O Ngapuke, Ohakune, Ohura
Valley, Ongarue, Orautoha, Owhango, Raetihi, Saint Patricks Catholic,
Tarrangower, Taumarunui, Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Ngati Rangi, Tokirima, Turaki
Additionally there are three units for
preschools – if you are interested in the programme being delivered in your
preschool please click on this email link:
This free Council programme enables children
to investigate the link between the earth’s natural resources, the products
they use and see around them and the resulting waste (natural resources we no
longer want) that pollutes our environment.
This comprehensive programme consists of
different units each focussing on a specific solution to our waste problem. As
the units alternate each year students will constantly receive new material.
They will have received 9 units by the time they leave Year 8.
