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!

We have organised a special recycling collection day with SCR Group’s Recycle With Mondo For A Better World – School Fundraising Through Recycling Program. Our school will be paid 25c per kilo for the goods for reuse and recycling.
This program helps raise money for our school, reduces waste to landfill, creates jobs and supports communities in developing countries at the same time.
All we ask is for families to have a spring clean and clean out your wardrobes and cupboards over the next few weeks/days and bag any unwanted clothes, toys and linen that are no longer needed.
What to bring to school:
- linen (sheets, doona covers, towels, blankets)
- accessories (hats, scarves, gloves, belts, handbags)
Our school collection day is on Friday 17th June.
Look out for all of the posters around the school.Read More »
