Our dedicated team of Year 7 and 8 ‘Eco Warriors’ is integral to the functioning of the recycling system, transferring waste from internal recycling boxes across the school to external recycling bins on a weekly basis. It’s a great way for students in the lower school to participate in a process that helps keep the school running smoothly. Want to get involved? Speak to Rohan Selva-Radov (9N) or Miss Benham.
We’re actively looking into further avenues for improvement, including reducing paper usage school-wide, recycling printer toner cartridges and introducing book swap shelves in classrooms. In July, we’re launching our first (Re)Love Our Stuff event, an Eco Schools/Keep Britain Tidy project that involves a student-led sale of second hand clothes and books.
Perhaps most importantly, through all of this, we are seeking to educate the school community and raise awareness about environmental issues surrounding waste and the importance of reusing and recycling.
