With more light being shed on the damage caused to the environment through waste, we are truly focused on becoming as green as possible. We are committed to using the three R’s (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) as much as possible. By doing what we can, where possible, we will hopefully encourage the children, families and schools to follow suit. This isn’t about completely changing how we approach our daily tasks, but more about being conscious about how and where we shop, being creative about waste and working to reduce our carbon footprint.
Examples of these are using supermarket strawberry tubs to use in our cooking clubs as food waste containers, encouraging children to take peelings home to make into crisps or add into soups and looking at other school’s waste to reuse at another. The picture demonstrates how we have already done that, as Northwood Primary School were throwing out old decking boards. We reused them at Hurst Primary School to make two big food planters. It shows what you can do with a little thought and hard work.
We will be using our Twitter account to show how we are achieving the three R’s. Check it out @myChange_CIC
