Most young people care deeply about environmental issues, and wish to make a positive change to the environment around them. The Green School Programme provides an ideal way for fostering environmental awareness in the entire school and aims to make it an intrinsic part of the life and the ethos of the school.
Part of our Green School Programme in Loreto Grange Road, is to make the children responsible for taking care of their environmenti.e. classroom,yard and field.In doing this, the Green School Committee have an anti-litter action plan which incorporates reducing, re-using and re-cycling waste.
In order to minimise waste in the school we would encourage the children to:
- Use a lunchbox with a lid. Try to avoid cling film and aluminium foil. Re-use plastic bottles for drinks. Bring home any waste from their lunches.
- Use re-useable bags. Say “No” to plastic bags.
- Use both sides of a sheet of paper and put used paper into shredding bin.
