Recycling scheme trialled

Recently, the Global Goals Group started collecting used crisp packets to be recycled.  We are doing this with the help of TerraCycle and Walkers.  Every time we send crisp packets to  TerraCycle, they will make a donation to MacMillan Cancer Support on our behalf.

We look forward to recycling many more crisp packets next term and ask pupils to bring in their own packets from home, rather than sending them to landfill.  You will find the recycling station in front of our Eco noticeboard in the Dining Hall.

We would like to pass on our thanks to Castlehill PS for collecting crisp packets to be donated to the recycling scheme.

Climate Action Conference

The Global Goals Group held their inaugural pupil-led Climate Action Conference on Tuesday.  The aim of the conference was to share the work undertaken by the group this year and to look at developing activities/partnerships for Session 2019-20.

Pupils invited members of local action groups, elected members, members of the Parent Council and other partners into the school, in order to deliver presentations about the work undertaken this year.  A lot has been achieved by group with planning for new projects already in the pipeline.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the group this year.  If you’d like to join the group, please just speak to a member of the staff team, or pop along to one of our weekly meetings.

Eco Group support community campaign

Our Eco Group have created some posters for “The final straw” campaign running within the community.  The campaign aims to encourage local businesses to replace their non-recyclable plastic straws with new sustainable straws.

Jill Dawson, Plastic Group Coordinator said, “We were pleased to receive graphic art support from Bell Baxter pupils.  They have shown a real interest in the environment and want to make a difference.  We are grateful to Ms Pour and her pupils for the colourful posters and to Cupar’s caterers by demonstrating their support by reducing plastic waste.”

We would like to take the opportunity to ‘thank’ Sustainable Cupar for enabling our pupils to become involved with this campaign.

Rag Bag Appeal

The Eco Committee, along with some senior pupils, collected items of clothing for the Rag Bag Appeal this week, Tuesday morning.  The Committee are delighted to announce that the initiative raised a fantastic £112 which will now be donated to MacMillan Cancer Support.

The Committee would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who brought in some clothing to be recycled for the appeal.

An outstanding effort by the whole school!
