Plastic Eating Caterpillar Could Eat Through Waste!


Kiwi Kids News
 

Have you heard of the plastic eating caterpillar who could eat through waste? Well if you haven't here's some information about it. Researchers at Cambridge University have discovered that the larvae of the moth can eat the wax in beehives. Can you believe it? Experiments show that the insect can break down the chemical bonds of plastic in a similar way to digesting beeswax. However, caterpillars of the moth can make holes in plastic bags within an hour.

The playground upgrade!

An interview with Mr Gilbert

Have you heard that we are getting new playground equipment at Papatoetoe East? The money from the gala will be used to fund it.

Mr Gilbert is not sure if we will upgrade the whole playground or just parts of it. Did you know that the senior playground hasn't been upgraded for over ten years? Can you believe it?

Mr Gilbert doesn't know how much money each structure will cost until the playground people come and take a look. He's hoping that the upgrade will be finished by the end of this year.

Mr Gilbert wanted something that all the students could get value from not just some of the students, that is why he chose the playground project.

The upgrading will start by the end of this term.We might even have a competition to design our new playground.
