RAG BAG Textile Recycling Scheme

As part of our ongoing ECO work we will be taking part in the RAG BAG Textile Recycling Scheme this year.  The next collection will be from school on Tuesday 8th March.  Start looking out unwanted textiles, including all types and quality of clothing, paired shoes, bags, hats, belts, towels, soft toys, curtains and bed linen. All items must be clean and dry.  There is also a BOOK REUSE SCHEME for all unwanted textbooks, library stock, general literature and novels.  These items are sorted and reused where possible.  They DO NOT ACCEPT exercise books, dictionaries, journals, magazines or newspapers.

RSPB Birdwatch 2011

Today we are taking part in the RSPB Birdwatch 2011.  Each class is taking it in turns to watch and record the birds that they see.  We will gather our results and send them in to be counted.

The nursery helped us out by making bird cakes which we have hung in the trees and we have put out some feeders to tempt the birds to come out of hiding on this chilly day.

Start the new year with a spot of recycling!

You will probably have started the big clear up after the Christmas and New Year festivities, if you haven’t already recycled your old Christmas cards at Tesco, WH Smith or TK Maxx then remember that you can send all of them in to school and the Eco Committee will be arrange for them to be recycled.
We will also be collecting textiles for recycling in Feb/March (date issued as soon as it is confirmed) as part of our Rag Bag Campaign, so if you are having a clear out to make space for new clothes bought in the sales then put them aside and then we’ll let you know when to send them in to school.

Thank you

2008 ECO mascot

Congratulations go to Rachel in P5 who was the overall winner of the Eco competition to design a mascot for this year’s campaign to save water.

We received lots of entries and it was very difficult for the ECO reps to choose a winner.

Rachel’s mascot is proudly displayed in school at the noticeboard at the front of the school.

Rachel won her very own water saving device for toilets called a water hippo and appropriately enough her friends helped her name the mascot Waterloo!

The Eco reps have been busy installing water hippos in some of our older style school toilets. We will let you know how much water we are saving.

The winning design

What do you think of Waterloo?
