As a continuation from Waste Week, each week we are now collecting used Staff tea bags, coffee grounds and any fruit waste and putting this into a school composting bin into which the Headteacher has donated some special red stripey composting worms
As a school, we see the importance of all children and adults alike, learning the importance of not letting our energy go to waste. Our whole school ethos is to ensure that teachers and pupils realise the impact that our waste has.
Waste week, was a wonderful influence on our school.We now recycle everyday and the chidren love to sort the waste.Children now teach each other about the importance of caring for the enviroment and we take great pride in being as green as we can.
We enjoyed the campaign and have reported back weekly in assembly about how we have cut down tinfoil, cling film and drinks cartons. It really helped raise the profile of cutting down on these things at lunchtime
Our whole school got involved in Waste week all keen to do better than each other. We had a competition for the most reduced for landfill class. We were horrified by the amount of food waste we created from our lunchboxes and vowed to do better.
We monitored the waste generated in our school over 2 weeks.Our ECO team worked hard to raise awareness of the issues and everyone is trying to keep the waste to a minimum now. We're also looking at more ways to reduce and recycle in other areas.
We did the Assembly ppt and were amazed at the problem. We collected over two weeks to compare the difference and have spoken to a waste management company to see if we can make better use of our waste. We need mums and dads to help us change.
We wanted to highlight not only the amount of food wasted at lunchtime, but also the amount of packaging used. In our school packaging and left over food from packed lunches goes home so parents can see what their children are eating.
Everyone sorted their own hot dinner and packed lunch waste on two consecutive Fridays. We got better at sorting waste and understanding what can and cannot be recycled. We worked in class on ideas for a low waste lunch and sent the message home.
All the school got involved including the Caretaker and Lunchtime staff. We were amazed that we reduced our landfill waste by two thirds in a week. The Eco club now sort, collect and reuse waste in a variety of ways.
