Plastics Assembly

We had a school assembly this week focusing on ‘plastic’ and how we can reduce our plastic useage in school in order to help save our planet. ‘Change starts here’  We made a little promise to ourselves to try two things to reduce our plastic useage. The first was to make sure we bring a re useable water bottle instead of a disposable one and if we have packed lunch to use foil instead of cling film. Thank you Mrs Clarke
