1st Green Flag
Before the initiative started, much of our rubbish would have been going into 1 bin, heading straight for landfill.
Now, each class has 3 separate bins for sorting our rubbish:
Children from the middle - senior classes are chosen for 'The Green Team' to make sure we all do our part to keep our school clean.
Other strategies to help keep our school clean include: teachers photocopying on both sides of pages; classes taking turns picking-up rubbish around the school; collecting 'ringos'; encouraging the use of re-usable lunch boxes and drinks bottles and also re-using materials for art creations.
Each year the school also organises a Green Day. Everyone dresses up in green, all lessons are based on green activities and the classes even go out around the village collecting rubbish. It's a fun day out and allows everyone to play a part in maintaining our locality.
