TWTC Footprint January 2016 - Make 2016 the Greenest Year Ever!!!

BY Vicky du Toit

Happy New Year to all our clients and industry partners.  We trust that everyone had a blessed festive season!  The new year has kicked off with many activities and new opportunities to look forward to.  Our Schools Recycling Project calendar is almost fully booked for the first term and we are excited to assist the military to go green at the SANDF Armed Forces Week! Schools were welcomed with the announcement of the top three recycling schools for the last term of 2015. 

 

Kabega Primary once again took the lead with a total weight of 10954kg!  Dr Adele Botha, who is the driving force behind Kabega's Groenspoor prefects, has set a stellar example of how to run a recycling programme at school.  "Recycling has become an extracurricular activity at school, and we have a waiting list of prefects that want to be a part of this programme" - says Dr Botha.  The new Groenspoor prefects were very happy to receive a R3000.00 cash prize, donated by Mpact Recycling.

 

In second place with a total weight of 4989kg is Albertyn Primary.  The school has taken much initiative with their recycling programme and have also opened up their recycling station to the public.  The learners all help with sorting during break times and sometimes even after school.   Mrs Huiskens will soon be planning a few green activities for the year using their R2000.00 cash prize.

 

Not far behind, with a total weight of 4847kg is BJ Mnyanda Primary.  The enviroclub was pleased to receive a cash prize of R1000.00 and will be meeting with Emmy to discuss recycling activities to further motivate the learners.  "We recycle to keep our school clean," says Prince Tamsanqa, a 13 year old learner from BJ Mnyanda.

 

We would also like to congratulate the top 10 schools for January 2016:


Alexander Road High

Kabega Primary

Diaz Primary

BJ Mnyanda Primary

Phakamile Primary
