Green Schools Update

As you know we have been working towards the Green Schools Flag for Litter and Waste since last year.

 

So far we have made great improvements. We have reduced the amount of waste we are sending to landfill from 10 bags to 2-3 bags a week.

 

You can help us improve this even more by reducing the amount of packaging being used eg. tinfoil and clingfilm. It is also important the the waste that is being brought home is recycled correctly.

 

We would also like to remind every pupil to use a reusable water bottle if possible.
