We are really excited to launch our Green Team in school to help increase our awareness of environmental issues, as well as help us to become a more environmentally-friendly school.
The children in Year 5 organise the collection and emptying of the school recycling bins. We are using the Morrisons Let's Grow Vouchers to purchase a composting bin so that we will be able to recycle the food waste from our packed lunches.
In December, we had solar panels installed in school. These are helping to reduce our carbon footprint and improve our environment. In December, we produced 127 kWh. So far this year, we have produced 407 kWh - that's a saving of 136.4kg of Carbon Dioxide emissions - equivalent to planting 6 trees!
January: we produced 365kwh.
February: we produced 634kwh. We have now saved a massive 349.6kg of Carbon Dioxide - equivalent to planting 16 trees.
