Creating sustainable solutions to being more water and waste-wise has paid off for a group of high school learners at Knysna in the Southern Cape. They won the BioWise WasteNothing Knysna Schools competition in the senior category. The learners from Ashton Christian School built wind turbines and water gauges from plastic bottles, made solar panels and bottle brick furniture. They also created vertical gardens and are planning to make a vegetable garden, from which the community will also benefit. Grade 12 learner, Boikanyo Kgoronyane, says it took a lot of hard work and patience.” As youngsters we always litter everywhere we go, but now we are trying to build something from the waste.” Grade eight learner, Nadia Aziz, says a fair amount of research went into their earth-savvy projects..” We made rain gauges and checked them regularly. So we found that the one has the most rain is the one in the open field.” Principal, Adene Schutte, says the learners collected rain water which they have been using to recycle through the school toilet system. Ten schools participated in the competition. Ashford Christian School walked away with the 30-thousand rand cash prize, because their projects are ongoing and have become a way of life.
