Clothes Recycling

This year the Eco Committee are helping us all to learn about the impact of the clothing industry.  We have learned that :-

  • ·         1 rubbish truck of textiles is burned or landfilled every second
  • ·         Of the total fibre used for clothing 87% is landfilled or burned
  • ·         There are about 40 million people working in clothing factories around the world and most earn less than £2.50 a day.

 

So we are considering holding a  ‘Clothes Swap’ event or ‘Jumble Sale’ after Easter.

 

Please let us know if you think this will be a popular or useful event.

 

We are also arranging to have a Salvation Army clothes bank positioned in the chapel car park for us all to have easy access to clothes recycling facilities, while at the same time doing something good for a UK Christian charity and making a little money for school too.

 

World Book Day

We would like to inform you that we are holding World Book day on Friday 12th April We kindly ask you to bring £1.50 per family for the school council funds. The children can come in their own clothes or as a character from a book of their choice (we will not be judging this year as we do not want parents to be buying more costumes and rushing to get the costumes ready) you are also not allowed any Disney, super hero, cartoon characters or marvel costumes (as these are NOT book characters). You need to also bring your favourite book to talk about (if you do not want to talk about your book you do not have to) your book can be of your choice. At break time we will be playing a ‘Where’s Wally’ hunt for the chocolate lollies as the prizes. Thankyou.  School Council.
