On Friday the middles and seniors went to Wurundjeri Walk to practise cross country.
It was a very fun, but tiring day. Everyone had to do four laps of the park. Lots of parents were there and they kept cheering us on which helped us to keep running. Everyone did really well and tried their hardest. Ten girls and boys from each year level make it into the squad, but there are only 9 grade 4 boys.
On the way back to school, Will C made a comment about picking up rubbish, as this is a focus of our Inquiry this term. Our teacher found a bag with empty takeaway containers and then our audit 'snowballed' from there. We found a lot of rubbish on the way, which we put in the plastic bag and we also found a lot of stuff that is not good for the environment. We walked through another park on the way back and we found an old possum tail that sort of looked like a hairy poo! There were lots of full things, like barely eaten sandwiches and lots of bottles, which we know take 10,000 years to break down, but can be recycled.
Below is a photo of all the rubbish we collected. Some things we recycled at school and the rest we threw in the rubbish bin.
