Progress update on tidiest classroom.
Plans for the future.
Update since Previous Meeting :
Signs put on bins to show where the paper goes and where the rubbish goes.
We have reused old materials for art e.g.5th and 6th class made all their Christmas decorations from old materials.
Kevin and Ms. Carroll doing the compost bin 2-3 times a week.
Most classes are improving with keeping their rooms clean and having less plastic in their bins.
6th class feed the birds and water plants daily.
2 boys from sixth do laundry daily and dry it on Wire Horses over night.
School gardens and new greenhouse made from milk cartons that the whole school helped bring in.
Drink bottles are names and reused each day.
Plans for the future:
Turn off lights in classrooms when leaving.
Make sure the taps aren’t running when leaving.
We are getting rid of the rubbish bin so there will only be the paper bin and the compost bin.
Go around to all classrooms and advise them how to improve in the cleaning of their classrooms.
Every class will be growing something from vegetables to flowers e.g.5th and 6th class will be growing lettuce and peas.
We have assigned Bin Spies in all classes to watch usage of the bins.
