Bottle Recycling Campaign
We are trialling a bottle recycling campaign around school which we are launching the first day back following the Easter holidays.

Students are encouraged to collect bottles in exchange for a stamp on a recycling card which will equate to food related prizes.  For instance, six stamps equates to a free cookie, 12 for a drink to the equivalent of £1 and 18 will equate to a baguette.

Bottles can be exchanged during any service (ie breakfast, morning break and lunch) but students must line up as normal.

Recycling cards will be given out in form time before the end of term.
Mrs L Evans-Barlow – Business Manager
