In July 2009 we were awarded the GREEN FLAG by ECO SCHOOLS WALES.
Every classroom and room in the school has a paper recycling bin. All waste paper is recycled to save landfill. We are now making sure that both sides of paper is used before we recycle it. Eco Reps perform Lucky Dips from the recycling bins to see if both sides of the paper have been used before it is recycled. Pictured is a child from Reception recycling paper in a decorated recycling bin.
RECYCLING PLASTIC MILK BOTTLES Children from Nursery to Year 2 recycle their plastic milk bottles either by putting them in their classroom's recycling bin or using them as a classroom resource. Pictured are two Incy Wincy spiders made by Nursery children!
RECYCLING PLASTIC FROM OUR LUNCH BOXES Two recycling bins have been placed in the dinner hall so we can recycle things like plastic drink bottles and yoghurt pots from our lunch boxes. Monitors check whether children are recycling them and not putting them in the incorrect bin.
RECYCLING OLD AND BROKEN COMPUTERS The school makes sure that our old and broken computers are taken away to be recycled. This means that the chemicals in the computers do not pollute the earth, and are disposed of properly.
RECYCLING PRINTER CARTRIDGES
We can save energy in school in many ways. This helps us fight global warming.
SWITCH OFF LIGHTS that are not is use.
SWITCH OFF PLUGS that are not in use.
TURN OFF TAPS that are not in use.
CLOSE WINDOWS in rooms that are not in use.
CLOSE BLINDS in rooms that are not in use.
Litter is a particular problem in and around the school. We would asked everyone to put their litter in a bin or take it home to help make our local environment nicer.
The school has introduced ways to try and get the children to eat more fruit and vegetables. The school Tuck Shop open to years 1 to 6 only sells healthy snacks such as fruit. If children bring tuck from home, it must be healthy. Pictured is the school's Tuck Shop which is open at playtime.
We have been growing plants, fruit and vegetables throughout the school grounds to make it attractive to us and wildlife. Recently the Year 1 children and Outdoor club have been busy transforming their garden to make it a nicer place to learn and play for themselves and wildlife. Pictured are strawberry plants and flowers they have planted, grown and now take care of.
