Waipara School recently received a grant from the Canterbury Waste Joint Committee to purchase new lunch boxes for the children in our school. The purpose of the grant and the lunch boxes is to minimise waste from packaging and glad wrap. Children chose from a selection of five different bento lunch boxes. Here, three boys show off their lunch in three different types of lunch box. Working on the teaching of waste minimisation will be a priority in 2023. The children were very excited when we took delivery of them. Thanks to Phunky Bento and The Lunchbox Queen for sourcing the supplies.
