Going green at SFS!
Last Spring, we looked at ways that our school could contribute to helping our local environment. We already recycle used printer cartridges and mobile phones in school, so we looked at another way that we could be more environmentally friendly.
The idea of a re-usable bag was a bit hit with the children, in a whole school assembly they pointed out that they did not like to use plastic bags, they created rubbish and were dangerous to children and to wildlife. We decided to design our own bags and sell them to parents, teachers and friends. Our Eco-friendly bags project was a big success last year.
We are presently Eco-Friendly Schools Silver Award holders after the bag initiative and hope to move onto Green Flag status later this year. Watch this space…
