  • Furniture or homeware from IKEA or HomeSense
  • Everyday costs from supermarkets like ASDA, Tesco and Sainsbury’s

A Message from the Eco Committee

The eco committee has decided to participate in terracycling. This is where you are able to recycle previously non recyclable items such as pens and markers. We plan to set up a box in each classroom to collect these materials. To make these boxes we need lots of shoeboxes, if you have any spare and are willing to donate then please hand them in to Mrs Prete in CDT 5.
