New Wildlands recycling Bins and Grey Water Challenge

The Howick High Eco Club and Recycling Managers were proud to install a new set of recycling bins in their quads this term. We were able to purchase these bins with the Makro voucher that the school received from Wildlands in association with Nedbank and the Clothes for Life Campaign. We are grateful to Wildlands for sponsoring the stickers to label these bins. Howick High has been involved with recycling for 8 years now and we plan to continue growing the recycling system in our school in order to benefit both the environment and our school grounds.

With the rebates received from Wildlands for the recycled waste that we collect, our Eco Club has been able to take part in various water-wise projects. The school is currently involved in a grey water challenge where each class is encouraged to bring grey water from home every “Water Wednesday”. The Eco Club has been using this grey water to water the gardens around the school grounds, as well as the cricket pitch. This has turned out to be very successful and is saving huge amounts of water.

Early in September Howick High School held their annual Matric Art Exhibition. Matric students are required to put up retrospective exhibitions showing their work over the past 3 years. Many of the students could be justly proud of the standard of work they exhibited. As is our tradition pupils have the opportunity to auction their artworks on the night in a silent auction.

The auction was well supported with friends and family bidding against each other for their favourite artworks. The top bid this year was for a drawing by Patrick Ferguson which sold for R300.00 and Patrick was also the top earner of the night bringing in R1100. The silent auction raised a total of R5020 for the Art Department and its Artists.

A number of pieces have been selected for display in the Matric Art Exhibition at the Tatham Gallery in 2017.
