Eco Council's Recycling Mission!
Well done to all thirteen members of Bosbury School's Eco Council who met with Miss Spence this week for their Spring Term meeting, highlighting the need for a number of measures to be taken around school in order to further improve our immediate environment.
In particular, the Council noted that the small plastic cartons which Key Stage 1 children use during breaktime each day to drink their milk are not being properly recycled.
With plastic pollution being very much a hot topic in the news over recent months, being brought to the forefront of public attention by the shocking final episode of David Attenborough's Blue Planet II series, Eco Club decided that it was time to start tacking the problem closer to home.
Therefore, the two young ladies from Class 5 on the committee shown above wasted no time in coming up with their own solution - going out on to the Key Stage 1 playground just before the end of breaktime each day complete with hi-viz vests and collecting the empty milk cartons in special orange buckets to be taken to the school's green recycling bins where they are disposed of in a much more environmentally-friendly manner.
A huge well done to the Eco Council - this is exactly the kind of thoughtful and considerate thinking we are looking for in helping to improve both our school environment and the wider world. Stay tuned for more projects and initiatives which these eco-warriors will become involved in!
