Havelock North Intermediate

"We are currently working on two movies. They focus on our two main recycling initiatives - paper and food.

The paper recycling system at our school is run in conjunction with the Allbrite company. Our students and staff separate paper into recycling boxes which are emptied into large yellow and blue wheelie bins, which are emptied into a big skip bin. The students decided to make a thriller based on the Dalek idea from Dr Who. A student who chucks plastic in the recycle bin is chased and eaten by the animated wheelie bin.

The second movie is based on the staff member who owns a farm and who relentlessly gathers and sometimes even sorts food scraps to take home daily for his pigs. Most afternoons he can be seen fossicking through the rubbish bins with bare hands."
