Green Schools

 

Current theme: Global Citizenship- Litter and Waste

In previous themes we have explored issues such as Waste, Litter, Energy, Water, Travel and Biodiversity. Most of these themes would have related to issues in or near our school whereas Global Citizenship – Litter & Waste issues will cross international boundaries.

This theme will enable us to discover how our work on the Green-Schools programme has positively influenced people and their environments worldwide. It will also allow us to revise the Litter and Waste theme with the whole school.

Our actions and targets for Global Citizenship Litter & Waste will be focused around:

  • Raising awareness on how looking after our environment aids people all over the world

  • Promoting and facilitating ‘Active Citizenship’

  • Integrating the Global Citizenship Litter & Waste ethos into our wider Green-Schools programme

  • Making an improvement in the Litter & Waste management in our school

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We aim to reduce our waste to the minimum and we

will be encouraging everyone in our school to reduce

package, bring home any waste and reuse drink bottles.

We will continue to encourage composting and recycling

where possible.

We also monitor travelling to school in a green way by

doing our WOW days every Wednesday and we always

remind our school community about energy and water

conservation.
