Reducing Paper Towel Usage

In December we set a challenge to reduce the usage of Paper Towels in our school.....

Media Library - Paper Towels 1

‘’It’s the best idea the school has had’’. (Mia, Second class)

Congratulations to all classes for the great effort put into reducing paper towel usage in our school since the start of January 2020.


The children in 2nd class (Room A2) have been doing the maths:

  • So far they have saved 6 packets of paper towels during the month of January.
  • They worked out the average usage for the school and reckon the children of BSNS have saved up to 108 packets of paper towels this month.

If we keep this challenge up we could save 1,296 packets of paper towels in a year. Are we up for the challenge?


Well done everyone!!
