At the International School of Cape Town we have been looking at various aspects of WASTE. One of our Year 4 learners had the idea to use the paper that gets shredded in the school each day. She took the shredded paper home where she made firelighters. It was interesting and rewarding to see her awareness of the divide between rich and poor in South Africa.  She suggested that the firelighters be shared with people that need to use heat for cooking and as a source of light. She is currently working on another very exciting project where she uses 'waste' paper from our school, so watch this space!!
