HLELINGOMUSO Primary pupils and teachers are doing everything­ they can to care for the environment and keep it clean.

For years the school has been running its recycling project and pupils collect recyclable material such as papers, cardboard, papers, plastic containers and tins.

The school has bins provided for the storage of the material.

The school’s recycling project is spearheaded by Hlelingomuso teachers Hlengiwe Ntombela and Zukiswa Taleni.

They both work together as the school’s environmental health committee.

“We do this in partnership with a waste recycling company in Mkondeni­.

“The project not only keeps our school clean, it has taught us to also care for our surrounding areas.

“The pupils learn how to help take care of their environment and to keep it clean,” said Ntombela.

She said they would like to see the project gain momentum.

“The recycling project also helps us take care of our school garden. The vegetables we reap from the garden are donated to destitute families.

“It is imperative for today’s children to know the importance of nature in our lives,” added Ntombela.
