She told us we could add green items, such as banana skins, apple cores and eggshells, but not too much citrus. Definitely no cooked food!

Following the Eco Committee's Environmental Review, we are working on reducing waste.  We are focusing on three areas:

Waste

To reduce the number of printed sheets & to use both sides of the page.

To ensure everyone is informed about reduce, reuse, recycle.

To get compost bins for our food waste.

To recycle batteries and stamps.

Biodiversity.

To record wildlife in the school grounds.

Marine

To reduce  (and ultimately ban) single use plastics?

To teach about marine life conservation.

To take part in a beach clean up.
