In 5M the children have been working with an organisation called Ground Work with a focus on minimising food waste in school and in our homes. Their slogan is ‘Yes to taste No to waste’. The children have been weighing the schools food waste on a Monday and have calculated that we have wasted over 50 meals worth of edible waste over the past 4 Mondays! As a school we are committed to bringing that number down. The children have been working hard learning about the harm this has to our environment, and the things that they can do to help reduce edible waste, and now they would like to share this message with you.
We invite all parents to our campaign day on the 19th of March after school, in the Junior Playground where we will be making delicious smoothies on smoothie bikes, with fruit and vegetables that can sometimes be classed as waste. A member of the Croydon council will also be there offering free food caddys to you. This is all while children will be walking around sharing this important message. Please come by and support our children and their new found passion. We look forward to seeing you there.
Miss Martin and Miss McVeigh
