Spring Term 2017

Today we celebrated our school Eco Day, children dressed in either yellow or green to mark the occasion. Some of our Eco Club and Committee members presented an assembly to the Junior pupils highlighting some of the key aspects of the work that we do. One such topic was Toilet Twinning. We recently twined our school toilets with a school block in Pakistan, helping to support and educate less fortunate children in the importance of hygiene and sanitation. It is a fantastic program, and something we’re very proud to be a part of.

As part of our Green Tree School Award, The Woodland Trust has provided Llanyrafon Primary School with 30 new saplings, trees that will not only help in creating a habitat and food source for countless wildlife, but will also help in expanding our outdoor learning area and Forest School program in future years. Today, pupils from Year 6 and Reception worked together and planted all of the trees, forever changing the landscape of the school and making an exceptionally positive impact to our environment. Well done!

We have introduced a new ‘Empties Please’ ink cartridge recycling scheme that not only recycles the school ink cartridges, but also provides staff and pupils with collection bags to take home and return any empty/old cartridges for collection.

Last year Llanyrafon Primary School registered with The Woodland Trust’s ‘Green Tree Award Scheme, a program where schools are rewarded for completing environmental projects and encouraging outdoor learning.

 

In March 2017 we’ll receive a school tree pack, consisting of 30 new trees which will not only help in creating a habitat and food source for countless wildlife, but will also help in expanding our outdoor learning area for our Forest School program in future years. This will be an exciting new opportunity for pupils be directly involved with, and responsible for, the planting and care of new trees.

 

We’re very pleased to announce that we have now been awarded with our bronze certificate from the Woodland Trust for our efforts to make Llanyrafon Primary School as environmentally conscious as possible.

 

We have succeeded in reducing our School’s CO2 emissions by continuously monitoring, and cutting our energy consumption.

 

In January we ran a Christmas card recycling scheme which resulted in over 3,000 cards being donated by both staff and pupils. This meant that Llanyrafon Primary School was directly responsible for three new trees being planted in the UK.

 

We have also introduced a new ‘Empties Please’ ink cartridge recycling scheme that not only recycles the school ink cartridges, but also provides staff and pupils with collection bags to take home and return any empty/old cartridges for collection.

 

2017 looks set to be an exciting new year for all our Eco School members!
