What a load of rubbish!
On Tuesday 12th February, the Eco Group took part in a beach clean at Beach Cove and Coryton Cove. We were met by Vanessa Riley from Dawlish Against Plastic who assisted us. We found old cans, bottle caps, fishermen nets and lots more. We compared which beach had the most rubbish and were surprised by the amount of rubbish found in such a short period of time. We found it quite tricky to leave the beach as we kept trying to find more rubbish but we are hoping to do another beach clean in the future. We will be presenting an assembly to our school to show everyone the rubbish removed from the beach. We had a great afternoon and we know there is a little less rubbish in the sea due to our help. We would like to thank the parent helpers for their fantastic support on our beach clean.
Eco Schools Bronze award
We are delighted to share our fantastic news that we have now earned our Eco Schools bronze award. To earn this award, our school had to meet the criteria set by Eco Schools which included setting up an Eco Committee, undertaking an environmental review and producing an action plan following on from the environmental review.
Our school has taken part in initiatives such as Waste Week, Switch off Fortnight and applying for a grant to enable us to compost our fruit and vegetable waste. The children have also been learning about looking after our precious plant throughout their lesson which has included writing to the Prime Minister to ban single use plastic.
We are really proud of our achievement and now looking forward to earning our Silver Award, and finally the Green Award. Well done to everyone at our school!
