Schools Recycle Right Challenge Competition

Take your student's learning to a new visual level with a chance to WIN one of three GoPro HERO7 White Action Video Cameras!


This year’s Schools Recycle Right Challenge competition is about exploring packaging types and to find out how to dispose of them correctly. Of course, where possible, we always encourage you to reduce and reuse first but with the help of the Australasian Recycling Label, we can dispose of and recycle our packaging correctly.

Three lucky winners will receive a GoPro HERO7 White Action Video Camera (RRP $298 each) to take their learning activities to a new visual level. From outdoor vlogging to group work and presentations, students will enjoy using this technology to enhance their learning experience.

The competition is open to our early learners, primary and high school students and we have tailored the competition to suit each level of learning.
