Introduce Green Mixed Recycling Bins in classrooms




This year, we will be working on improving our school environment, especially outside areas. This has already started with a regular Litter-picking rota that any child can sign up for.



Following a review of paper wastage in classrooms, ALL STAFF now have to print on a 'locked print' (which means the paper only comes out when they type their code in) - a small change, but reminds us to: THINK BEFORE WE PRINT!

If you have any further suggestions or ideas for future missions, please do not hesitate to speak to any of the eco councillors or Mrs Parker.
