02 Aug Green Team visit Stratford for ‘Waste reduction project’
Representatives from the Green Team went to the Discover centre in Stratford to a celebration event with Eco Active, to come together with other schools who have also been taking part in the ‘waste reduction project’. During the morning the children gave a presentation on what they have been doing to reduce waste at Orchard, for example using posters and top tips to raise awareness, running a lunchtime club to teach their friends how to recycle textiles and ordering food recycling bins for our lunch hall. They also had the chance to take part in some fun eco activities, such as plastic bottle bowling, making recycled key rings and creating a poster with their promises of how they will make their school greener. At the end of the event the children had to dress up their teacher, Miss Lee, in a range of recycled materials. She then had to do a catwalk with the other teachers.
