Te Taiao o Tamaki

What I understand so far - People / families in places like Latin America, Ghana, India and many more other countries, don’t have fresh water to drink. They have to walk 3 hours just to get some water, and the water isn’t even fresh. The water that they collect is full of bacteria that can cause them to have diarrhea, illness, diseases and can also lead to death. I also learnt that every 19 seconds, a mother loses their baby because of the bacteria in the water that they drink.

Our class, room 7 first walked around the senior block to check the drains, because the rubbish that go into the drain, lead into the sea. We took pictures first, and then we picked them up and put it into the bin we carried around. We also checked the junior block and collected the rubbish. After that, we made a circle under a tree and shared what we noticed while walking.

What we noticed:

  • There were mostly crinkly packets, especially chip packets.
  • There were a lot of rubbish.
  • There are more rubbish outside, than in our bins.
  • There are so many leaves and rubbish in our drains that it's now completely dry.

I have to admit most of the rubbish we saw are from the food/lunch students bring to school. What social action can we take to help clean our school up?
