At Camberwell Girls we recognise the imperative to be more sustainable, and are actively designing opportunities for our students to think more sustainably. As part of our Year 7 Service Learning program, we were looking for a facilitator who could support a hands-on workshop focused on reducing waste. Petra has worked within our parameters to deliver an engaging, purposeful learning activity in the form of a beeswax wrap workshop. Petra's strong communication skills and high standards were key to making our learning activity a success. Each of our students was able to design and make a beeswax wrap of their own, to be used in their nude food lunches throughout the year. Introducing a program such as this has an associated level of risk, and Petra was able to reduce this for us with her meticulous planning and preparation.
