Recently, the Student Representative Council have implemented a recycling program called Cash for Containers which was developed by the Northern Territory Government. The Cash for Containers program involves students bringing in recyclable containers, such as aluminium cans and plastic (PET) bottles, from home. The school then counts and keeps record of the number collected each day. The collected recyclables are then taken to Envirobank for recycling and the school receives 10 cents for every can and container recycled.
On Tuesday the 24th of April, Wagaman Primary held an ANZAC Day Assembly to commemorate those who fought in the Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War and also those who continue to serve and protect our country in conflicts of today.

The school and community assembled on the front lawn by the commemorative plaque to conduct a solemn ceremony of remembrance.
