Students at a Wagga school are appealing for community help in a bid to win a $45,000 playground.
Saint Mary MacKillop Colleges’ students are participating in the TerraCycle and Garnier playground competition, which combines online voting and collecting used beauty products for recycling.
The school which amasses the most “playground credits” wins the playground, which is made from recycled materials. Cash prizes are also on offer.
“Our initial focus was to rustle up as many people as we could to cast their votes online,” David Van Styn, the co-ordinator for the school’s entry, said.
The Hely Avenue school is collecting used beauty products including shampoo bottles, empty mascara and foundation tubes, as these items also contribute to playground credits.
“We need 1000 people to go online every day and vote,” Mr van Styn said.
