What do you do in your lunch break?

Xavier and Nell lead the water wise assembly - 300 kids now know not to run the tap when they brush their teeth!

“What did you do in Green Team today? asked the Spanish teacher as she saw an 8 year old coming up the stairs.

“Oh, we just saved the world!”

“And that was just lunch time,” said the teacher repeating the story back to me. “What would the Green Team do if they had a bit more time?” Quite.

I love the way kids can get an idea, turn it into a script, be ready to do an assembly and feel confident that they really are changing things that matter. In this case being a lot more water wise.

This post is by Nicola, inspired by the Green Team that meets weekly at Nell’s primary school. For other ideas about what to do with children, see Homemade Kids: thrifty, creative and eco-friendly ways to raise children.
