As we aim to achieve the Green Flag Award by Summer Term 2019, this academic year has seen major improvements in recycling and the management of waste across the school.
The greatest achievement in the area of waste this academic year has been the reinstatement of the school recycling system, which we have been without for almost two years. With fortnightly external collections, the new system will allow us to drastically reduce the environmental impact of the school.
Even better, the system is an improvement on the former paper recycling system that was rescinded in 2016, bringing Dry Mixed Recycling for a range of materials to the school for the first time, allowing us to further cut down on the amount of waste going to landfill.
In addition, our dedicated team of Year 7 and 8 ‘Eco Warriors’ is integral to the functioning of the recycling system. Read about their efforts here
