Waste Week

pod WW i WW ii WW iii WW iv WW v

Last week, numerous classes within our school celebrated International Waste Week by completing various waste-related activities. Some classes carried out fact finding missions, some made posters to highlight waste issues and some traced the origins of fruits, calculating their hidden carbon footprint. The Eco committee, who delivered assembly on Friday, decided to provide stickers to all pupils involved, but just photocopy one certificate per class to save paper! Well done to all.

Super work guys, enjoy your prizes!
