RESOURCE SMART

Earlier this term our new Seaford Park Waste Warriors were announced for 2017/2018. The job of those selected is to help our school with its commitment to the war on waste. This includes rubbish reduction and minimising water usage and wasting electricity. It was wonderful to see the proud faces when I announced those student’s names.

This week in the vegetable garden the Waste Warriors helped me to harvest the leeks and chives we had growing as well doing some much needed weeding and watering.

 

 

 


 

Nude Food

 

Thank you to the students and families who support this initiative on a daily basis. I know I have certainly noticed a reduction in waste in bins and around the school.
