On the 1st June, Belle Vue held its inaugural Upcycling Competition. We wanted to help students (and families) ‘rethink’ what they would normally do with their various discarded materials (throw out, recycle or CREATE!), as well as see how creative they could be when ‘reusing’ their waste.
Students across prep to grade 6 were asked to find materials at home that would have otherwise been thrown out or recycled, and use them to create something new.
There were two categories that students could choose from: make something that can be worn, or something that can be used.
A huge number of students participated in our competition, and their effort and creativity was outstanding!
Well done to all students (and families) who got involved!
