Food Waste at School:

Thursday 2nd February 2017: The Eco-Committee met today.  They have obtained a food waste caddy from Cardiff Council for the staff to put their waste food peel and teabags into for composting.  The children explained to the staff why it's important to dispose of food waste sensibly. The children also saw how food waste from the school kitchen is collected in a larger waste bin and is taken away to the Council recycling and waste centre at Lamby Way. The children will collect the food waste form the staffroom at the end of every lunchtime and put it with the kitchen food waste.  The pictures below show the Eco-Committee outside the kitchen and in the staffroom.  

        

 Kaci our Year 2 Class rep recently spoke to her class about the School Eco Code. Well done Kaci for spreading the word! All of our reps will be sharing their work with their classes and teachers to improve the environment around the school and the world outside.

           

Really Rubbish Campaign Awards and Event

On Wednesday 23rd November, Kaylum, Christopher and Charlie visited the Cornerstone Art Centre in Cardiff to take part in the Really Rubbish Campaign Eco Awards 2016. They took part in Eco activities related to The Journey of Electricity, The Use of Resources Around the World, How Waste is Managed in Cardiff and Love Food, Hate Waste. The children plan to share what they learnt with the children at school. It's worth visiting the Really Rubbish website to see great ideas for children and teachers to Reduce, Re-use, Recycle and RECOVER.
