Recycling Assembly

The School Council did an excellent job leading Key Stage Two in a recycling assembly today. They gave us lots of top tips about recycling and will be coming around with some posters to display in class. Thank you to our honorary School Council member for this assembly – Piper -who brought the issue to our attention.

This was their final job of the year and as always, they did an excellent job. A big thank you and well done to this year’s School Councillors.

05.03.19 Fairtrade


The School Councillors led an assembly to kick off Fairtrade week. They talked about what Fairtrade is and why we should choose Fairtrade products. It was interesting to learn that lots of the products that we already buy are Fairtrade! We also enjoyed finding out about where lots of our everyday products come from. Throughout the week each class will participate in lessons and activities linked to Fairtrade.
