Karen Wagg and Chris Black, Waste and Recycling Officers from ERYC, hosted a Recycling Worship this week, to coincide with our Waste Week Campaign.
This was to encourage pupils to understand the importance of sorting out our rubbish and putting used resources in the correct bin.
The children were amazed at how long a plastic bag/bottle takes to degrade and that glass always stays in its original form.
Pupils enthusiastically queued up to place selected items in either the blue, brown or general waste bin.
A large compost bin and six brown caddies were kindly donated by the local authority so St Mary’s can press ahead with even more recycling.
We would also like to give a big thank you for helping us to receive a grant of £10,000 from the Bags of Help Tesco Fund
