Kru Yuzu, Panyaden’s Life Skills teacher, invited a masked guest to join us today at our Tidy Up session. The children gladly welcomed Khun Re Re, art teacher Kru Or’s alter ego, wearing a shiny face mask topped off with a flamboyant hat recycled from egg cartons and painted yellow. Her character’s name is the abbreviated version of Recycle and Re-use. Kru Yuzu said that the cartons were previously used to make paper vegetables for the Kung Fu Chef’s special wise habits soup. Now they have found new life as a bright yellow hat!
Both teachers played a video of a paper recycling plant to show our children where the used paper that we collect goes to and how they are recycled into ‘new’ cardboard, tissues and other paper products. By recycling and re-using the paper, we can help save trees from needless destruction. This video was followed by our school’s regular Friday green practice of tidying up the schoolyard by picking up leaves that will then be recycled into organic compost for our garden.
