Litter Pick in Kellington Park 

 

Spring Report 2016

Recycling has been the focus this term.

A meeting was held in January with Mrs Hesp and Mrs Newton (Eco governor) to discuss how to make the school and community more aware of recycling, other than the weekly collections from the Council.

 

Mrs Hesp explained this had been investigated and our options were limited because fees would be charged for some recycling collections.

 

Many children bring drinks in a plastic bottle with their lunch, and are usually thrown in the normal refuse bin.

The Eco council bought a bin for recycling plastic bottles, which is in the hall.  The bottles are counted and Mrs MacKenzie takes them to be recycled. They will record the amounts collected, hoping to improve as time goes on.

 

The paper recycling boxes have been misused recently, with items that cannot be recycled. The Eco council put labels on the boxes to remind everyone what to recycle.

An assembly was held by the children to raise awareness in school the importance of recycling.

Parents were reminded about the recycling bins at the Red Lion pub on the Friday letter.

 

We have made links with the Parish Council and will be doing a litter collection in the park on the 21st April.

 

Mrs Newton has attended all the meetings.
