We are currently working towards our very first Green Flag. Our school has a very active Green School committee that is made up of representatives from each class, teachers and our caretaker. We have been working diligently with the help of all the other pupils and staff in the school to raise awareness of the unnecessary littering and waste within our school and community.
The committee monitors each room in the school on a regular basis to ensure that high standards of recycling and reusing is maintained. Classes have done a lot of curricular work to emphasise the need to reduce our litter and waste.
We had a very successful Day of Action as everybody left their cars at home and made an effort to join our “walking bus”. We invited Jane Jackson in to speak to classes about climate change, we have significantly reduced our use of the waste bins in each classroom and we have made lots of wonderful creations using “junk”.
We ran a competition where pupils had to come up with a slogan that would become our Green Code. The winner was Amelia and our Green Code is “Choose to Reuse, Choose to Recycle”.
