Published on

On Friday 4th March, Arleen from ChangeWorks challenged P4-7 pupils to think about how we can reduce waste by recycling and re-using and how to make sure our playground and school are Grade A Litter Free. Our ECO team will meet next week (Waste Week) to discus and decide how to take forward improvements. House Captains helped celebrate the launch of our new Playground Reading Shed and recognise pupils' achievements.
