Waste @ Gumdale 

A number of our STEAM students have been investigating lunchtime waste at Gumdale State School and are in the process of planning to improve our current waste footprint. They are investigating ways to reduce, recycle and compost. Stay tuned for the official launch in term 4 to find out how we can all support this great initiative.

Thank you to Louise Symon, a resident in our local community, for kindly donating a worm farm complete with worms! The worms are settling well and many students have enjoyed watching them at work.
