Over 130 Foundation Students from Bacchus Marsh PS dressed up as gnomes and paraded before the King of Gnomes, Costa Georgiadis. It was a novel way of celebrating Science Week with workshop demonstrations for the gnomes on worm farming, composting and sustainability in schools. We worked on the idea that these were the age the ABC is targeting with the Dirt Girl & Scrap Boy program and the new Getting Grubby show. All feature Costa as the King of Gnomes. The messages are based on reducing, reusing and rethinking sustainability at a very young age.
