On the 17 June I went to visit my children at Ithembelihle Lsen School once again. This time we decided to do a recycling project with the children. I taught the children about litter and why it is bad and what happens to animals when they eat it. We decided as a group that we will no longer throw our litter on the floor but rather in dustbins.
We learnt that we can recycle certain items and we have started to recycle paper and plastic in their classroom! These children caught on to the recycling concept so easily and I can just hope that they carry on being so enthusiastic about it! We learnt that the green bin is for plastic and the red bin is for paper!
These children can not only help the environment by recycling but they can also help themselves! As these children battle with normal school curriculum they can use recycling as a tool to gain some income one day when they have to leave school.
Every time I visit these children they amaze me more and more! They inspire me and I can only hope that what I am doing for them they will benefit from in the long run.
