Food ror Christmas
We always collect food during our harvest festival week for the local church food bank, we decided this Christmas to collect for two charities, we collected essentials for homeless people, soap, toothpaste, warm clothes etc. and food for the food bank organised by local churches.
Our school is usually a litter-free zone but we were growing concerned about the litter around the school. We decided as a group to tackle the problem.
Old toys to new homes
We collected toys and resold them to buy a new guineapig home for the classroom, we raised £170 which bought us new houses for our other guineapigs as well. So from our unwanted toys, not only did they find new homes but our guineapigs are happy too.
Waste Not, Want Not!
We decided to sell our unwanted toys in the school, all the children brought in unwanted toys and the Eco Team resold them. It was a great success and after a week we had made £170, which we used to buy new guineapig homes for our school pets as they had almost eaten their old ones. We still had lots of toys arriving but the committee decided that enough was enough! What to do with all the toys? We had a great idea, there are children in Syria on the news suffering terribly, perhaps our toys might bring a smile to a child in need. We teamed up with Crownhills Community College who were sending toys to Syria and they are on the way.
Raising money for our outdoor learnimng space
We have being raising money to make our outside school a nicer place to be.We raised the money by doing an eco-firendly stall at most of our school fairs.Last year at the Christmas fair we sold things such as cards, book marks,bird feeders,dog treats and much more. We made these ourselves.We raised a total of £47.49. We are doing this to be a more eco-friendly school.
We are trying to cut down the plastic and paper we use to help the enviroment. We're making posters to advertise it, and many people are joining in!
