On our Water Explorer day the learners were surprised at how much water is used in making a piece of paper – 10 litres!!! The had the opportunity of making their own paper from recycled paper and were amazed at how much fun it was even though initially some of them were not keen to put their hands in the water mush. We have a paper recycling bin at school and the learners are now enthusiastic to make their own paper from this paper.
