Our task from the forum is to find out what you think of nuclear waste and we have a survey that we would love you to fill in, as a class or individually. The link to the survey is down below. If you could take a few minutes to fill that in on Monday or Tuesday that will be fantastic. On Wednesday morning we’re going to meet up again to look at the results and decide on how we will respond to Mr. Weatherill.
So sorry about the short timeline, but that’s just how it is!
Thanks you for your patience and hopefully your participation in the survey.
If you would like some more information there are some fact sheets here.
