Teaching kids about rubbish
2 Sep 2010
Thousands of school age children have learnt about living sustainably through drama in schools. An 11-year relationship between local schools, Keep Gisborne Beautiful and Gisborne District Council, has seen students writing, directing and acting in productions with an environmental theme. Anne Lister, council’s environmental health educator initially worked with the Invisible Theatre Company, then Gisborne Girls High School. For the last 8 years she has worked with Ilminster Intermediate’s ‘Green Team’. The theatre performances are toured around the districts schools. This year’s play ‘Want it, Have it’ was performed at the end of May for 17 schools in the region. It is about shopping wisely; asking do I really need this and what will happen to it when I don’t need it anymore. The play was written and directed by Ilminster’s drama teacher, Sharon Start-Walter with the help of her students who make up the “Green Team”. Read more >>
