Food Waste

Food waste bins.School Councillors have been working in conjunction with Somerset Council to arrange for food waste to be collected.

Each class has their own food waste bin which they use every Thursday.  The class reps then take the food waste and dispose of it, ready for it to be collected by the Council every Tuesday.

Jo said, "We hope to recycle more food waste next year.  It is such a brilliant thing to do.  People don't realise what happens to their food when they put it in a black bag.  We need to get people recycling!

The school already recycles paper and card​.  The Councillors hope to start using fruit peelings for composting in the 2013 summer term.
The School Council have worked hard on 3 projects: 

1.  To try to improve the pond area.

Jo explained what the School Council have been doing on these projects:

"We have finally decided to improve our pond area by putting decking around it; this will be done during May.  We are hoping this will expand our ability to explore pond habitats and animals, by allowing children to do fun and educational activities like pond dipping.

As for our plan on moving the vegetable beds from the KS2 quiet garden to the KS1 garden, this has been completely successful.  We decided to do this because after a while we realised our vegetables were not getting enough sunshine.  Our garden is now safe in KS1 and we are growing a huge variety of lovely vegetables."​
