When do we meet?

Every Thursday lunchtime the Eco-Committee meet and talk about all things Eco.

Book Swap

Book swap is a way of recycling and reusing old books.

The idea is that you bring in a book and we will give you a ticket in return.  Then you cab take your ticket along to Mrs Crook and Mrs Noakes office at lunchtime and choose a book you would like to read.  The book swap will take place on the last Thursday of each term.

What do we recycle?

  • Batteries
  • Mobile phones
  • Ink cartridges
  • Cd’s & DVD’s
  • Pens
  • Glue sticks
  • Books
  • Paper
  • Card
  • Plastic bottles

How can you help?

  • You can bring in as much recycling as possible.
  • You can make sure you travel to school in an active and safe way.
  • Turn off the lights!
  • Don’t waste food!
  • Don’t waste water!
