Help Our Worms!

Posted on 27 Jun 2018

Help our worms and help our Earth! 100kg of organic waste needed every week!

We invite you to add your own organic waste to the school worm farm. Simply bring food scraps to the bins at the end of the worm farm. We will do the rest. We only ask that NO meat is added to the organic matter. Worms are strictly vegetarian. Because our worm farm is so big it can tolerate citrus and potato peels.

You will be amazed at how much you can recycle and our worms will thank you!

What an honour is was to judge such extraordinary speeches at our Public Speaking School Final Competition, Rostrum. Thank you to the children who braved the stage to share with us their ideas and words – and thank you to the teachers and adults who supported the children in participating.
A big congratulations to Sohil from the Year 6/5, who was our winner on the day. Sohil impressed the judges with his audience engagement and use of humour. Sohil will represent Neville Bonner Primary School at the next round of finals.
