We have now officially completed our silver award!
Thank you to all those who spoke with us, including the lovely lady from the soil association about food for life, and Craig Hanning from the council who is helping us form a litter strategy.
Lets go for Green!
We have recently held a meeting with Craig Hanning to discuss monitoring litter around our school area, and have decided to split it up into small sections and rate the quality of each one from A to D.
We are meeting with him again to do the initial survey, and also hopefully organise the quad to be cleaned.
Updates to follow
We are looking for pupils who have an interest in H.E. and eco issues to join our food for life group, an initiative set up by the soil association to combat food waste and promote a culture of loving food. If you are a senior school pupil and are taking H.E. we would love to have you. If interested speak to Ms. Devlin in H.E.
This months rag bag collection made £36.00, which is more than our last collecton!
Thank you to everyone who donated.
We have put our name down for an allotment in Elm’s park just across from the school in order to potentially grow fruit and veg for our school kitchens and bee friendly flowers. We have yet to hear back but we are hoping to be allowed access in the coming months.

Our indoor bank is up and running and we have ordered our first collection due to the large number of bags of clothing already.
Both our outdoor bins and our recycling bins have arrived so you will start seeing around the school soon. Our recycling bins will be put in the cafeteria for paper bags and other recyclable goods.
The next meeting will be on Thursday 9th April at Lunchtime.
Our Rag bag initiative has proven to be a success and we have already ordered a collection! We are considering applying for an outdoor bin due to the popularity but for the meantime our indoor bin is still in place in the assembly hall. Bags are available at the pupil dookets behind the duplicating room door.
