Litter is a problem in most places and Loanhead is no different. However, we recently contacted Hart Builders to ask if they could help to provide our school with new litter pickers- and they did! Hart Builders, currently constructing new houses nearby, sourced and delivered 20 new pickers to us, which is just fabulous. It means each class now have new pickers and we have some spare. Thank you Hart Builders!
We are hoping to organise larger scale litter picks around and outside the school grounds in the new year.
Loanhead PS are now collecting empty crisp packets to feed the hungry Crisp Packet Monster ( see above). We hope to send these packets away to be recycled using the Walkers Crisps recycling scheme.
Empty plastic bottles in school should all be put into a plastic recycling box. We are planning to collect unopened/unwanted water bottles from the dining room to keep in a ‘bank’ for children to access for sporting events etc.
These are just some of the initiatives we are driving forward. We have many more issues to tackle in 2020 but every little step forward is a step on the road to becoming a truly eco-friendly establishment.
