My ‘best teaching partner ever’ Megan runs Earth Angels. This club has been running for a number of years and since Megan took over it has won awards, hosted a conference and occasionally ‘feeds’ students and staff! It fits well under our umbrella of ‘MakerSpace’.
The Earth Angels are a group of students interested in making our school environment a better place through the development of sustainable practices such as maintaining our school vegetable patch, worm farms and composting systems, undertaking waste audits and managing a re-usable tuckshop bag system to reduce paper bag use. The Earth Angels use library resources (primarily our non-fiction collection) to plan our crop planting calendar, find recipes to use with our crops, work out sustainable crafts and learn more about our worm farms and composting systems.
Megan recently participated in a ‘Sustainability’ conference and referred to many wonderful books and ideas which she has used in her club.
