    Target 4

How we are doing so far:

  • We are currently recycling on average 288 milk bottles a week which is over 11,000 per school year.
  • By using Schoop to send out newsletters we are saving at least one ream (500 sheets) per newsletter
  • Seesaw – the use of seesaw again has dramatically reduced the amount of paper we are now using
  • The installation of hand dryers in the children’s toilets has reduced the use of paper towels
  • We have reduced our overall waste from 4 (don’t know how many litres the binds are) bins to 1
  • We have been successful in taking part in an Eco Champions School project with Plas Derw where the children will be learning about Biodiversity, Climate Change, Sustainably and Eco champions.
