Eco Group support community campaign

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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!

Plastic tree and single-use plastics

The plastic tree was made in the school to highlight our over-reliance on single-use plastics and was a collaboration with Sustainable Cupar’s “Fruit and Blossom Group”.

The school will continue to work with Sustainable Cupar and the town’s Plastic Reduction Group as part of our “pass on plastics” campaign.

Mrs Harvie (English Faculty) would like to ‘thank’ to Mr Lambrou (Technologies Faculty)  and his S2 Nurture Group, who built the tree; to Billy, who transported the tree; to Ms Pour, Mrs MacLeod, the Eco Group and the S1 Eco Day pupils who made plastic fruit, and to all of the people who collected packaging to support the project.

The tree was on display as part of the Cupar Arts Festival in June.
