Green Tip #18 - Ekodeck Plus

Welcome to this week’s sustainability news......

The new benches in the quadrangle have been completed and they look fabulous!

Even more exciting is that fact that it is made from Ekodeck Plus, a timber substitute which is a composite of reclaimed timber and bamboo and High Density Polyethylene (HDPE).

You may also be interested to learn that in addition to decking made up of Ekodeck Plus, the natural timber trim is reclaimed timber from the spectator seats of the indoor pool at the AIS, which was completed stripped out. A great example of re-purposing.

Year 8 Digital Technology Forum

The Year 8 Digital Technology Forum is a week long program which aims to develop the students skills in Information Technology. The goal for the week is for students to produce a product they have developed using coding they have learnt about during the week. As part of this week, the students will be taking part in the International Hour of Code. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science.
