We will be taking part in National Waste Week 11-17th March 2013. This is a fantastic opportunity to get the whole school learning about waste and thinking about how they can cut down on the amount of waste they produce, as well as how they can reduce the proportion that goes to landfill, by re-using, recycling and composting.

I have discussed ideas with Student Council who have agreed a scheme to raise money through recycling for an international charity.

We are therefore asking pupils to bring to school any unwanted:

The weight of these items will be converted to cash and a donation made to WaterAid, who aim to provide safe water, effective sanitation and hygiene education to the world’s poorest people.

If you are able to donate any of the items listed above please send them to school in either carrier bags or bin bags.

We will arrange for the items to be collected on Friday 17th March 2013.
