Bounty the Boat

Northpine Christian College Childcare & ELC

We know commercial fishing is recognised as a major factor affecting marine ecosystems, Bounty the boat however is on a journey to do the opposite, he works hard to clean the oceans in the areas that aren’t as easily accessible to us humans.

On his load you can see he is prepared for his long journeys at sea. Bounty enjoys catching the oceans unwanted waste with his hook and dropping it in his colour coordinated bins.

He has a yellow bin for paper & cardboard, a green bin for compost, a grey bin for metal, a blue bin for glass, an orange bin for plastics and finally a red bin for waste which cant be recycled.

If we all do our part we can make a difference in our environments as well, just like Bounty!

Dolly the waste police dolphin

Creative Kids OSHC

Dolly the waste police dolphin is the animal the children feel drawn to and respect so it was hard to dismiss their choice.

Dolly displays the bin lid colours and what they represent as this will be a constant reminder to the community. Our families told us this was needed information through the surveys we collected.

She has a flipping action in her tail to demonstrate that it is cool to collect rubbish and put it in the correct bin. It’s her fun feature.

Dolly displays a police type hat with the waste symbol as the hatband. This shows she is important and a leader in the war on waste as well as someone to lead us in the right direction and to be listened too.

Dolly the waste police dolphin is an animal that is important for us to protect in our area as they live here and we are surrounded by water. We know if there is rubbish on land then it is in the water and who better than the most intelligent creature in the ocean to protect it and demand change.
