CRISP PACKET RECYCLING
Up until now it has not been possible to recycle crisp packets. Apparently the UK alone eat around 6 billion packets each year, which means a lot of rubbish! Our Eco Team have signed up to an initiative between Walkers crisps and Terracycle www.terracycle.co.uk/en-GB/brigades where crisp packet can now be recycled. Your crisp packets could end up as plant pots, park benches, watering cans and even bags! From next term we will have a recycling box in school, please don’t throw any crisp packets away, (they don’t have to be Walkers crisps) - bring them to school and recycle them. For every crisp packet we collect we will earn points which we can turn into funds for the school!!
Mayor Visit 7/12/2018
On Friday we had a special visitor at Lady Joanna. The Mayor of Ashford, Councillor Jessamy Blanford, visited our school to meet with our Eco Team and discuss our plans to help become more environmentally friendly.
The Mayor was very impressed with our garden and nature areas and was pleased to hear all about our work with The Big Cat Santuary last year. Our Eco Team have agreed 3 projects with the Mayor's office and the schools in our Foundation trust, these are: reducing usage of plastics, supporting our wildlife by creating more nature areas, and reducing litter. Our Eco reps also want to raise money for endangered animals too. You'll hear more about all these projects in Term 2, watch this space.....
