Pro-Ed Akademie turns out best recycler
Pro-Ed Akademie is the proud winners of the National Schools Recycling Competition (SRC), a project of the Recycle Namibia Forum (RNF). Mr Johann Lemmer from Rent-A-Drum presented the school with a cheque of N$10,000. Pro-Ed Akademie also won the N$1,500.00 prize for “Best Regional School Coast” and the income of their recycling material amounts to another N$3500.

Lemmer pointed out to the students what a significant role each of them played. The competition winner is calculated based on the most recycling material per learner giving equal opportunity to smaller schools. The level of participation of each learner is one of the most important factors and with Pro-Ed Akademie it came to 40.9 kg per leaner which was double the amount of the second best performing school. Principal Christiaan Grobler said: “our recycling project and the awareness it creates has enabled learners and their families to make recycling part of their daily life”.
