Case Study: Boomerang Bags—Parap PS
The question of how one can make a difference in the world is a powerful one. When given the right focus, it can lead to actions that eventually inspire widespread transformation. Such was the question facing the young learners of Australia’s Parap Primary School. A whole-school approach to environmental sustainability led the school to form the Eco-School team to tackle environmental issues of every sort.
The student-led Eco-Warriors team has done everything from tree planting to building a sustainable eco-garden. But for the longest time the most pressing issue on their minds has been the need to reduce the amount of plastic and plastic bags in our community and the in world.
Kids care about their communities and about the world we all live in, and the Eco-Warriors of Parap Primary School are no different. The action they took to address the problem of plastic pollution is an example to us all. This is the story of how teacher Chelsea Collins’ students used Solution Fluency and rallied their community to help them put their very own Boomerang Bags in the hands of local shoppers.
