Cows on Tour
Our Green Team members turned their hand to gardening as part of a competition organised by the charity Cows on Tour. Schools across Wales were given the opportunity to purchase wooden cows which they could plant on the theme of 'Grow Your Own'. Green Team members chose to highlight the problem of plastic packaging which cannot currently be recycled and planted their cow, which they named 'ECOw' with a selection of tasty vegetables. The competition was judged at the recent Royal Welsh Spring Fair and Smallholders Show and ECOw was Highly Commended.
Green Team have been busy sorting your recycling as part of our fantastic Terracycle scheme which we have joined as part of Rhiwbina Against Plastic. Thank you to all families who have donated hard to recycle plastic and a special thank you to those of you who have taken the time to sort your recycling for us.
Travel by bus
At parents evening in the Autumn Term, Green Team tried to encourage families to use public transport rather than cars when travelling around Cardiff. They prepared route maps and details of fares and timetables and were on hand to explain the benefits of using the bus. Many of you completed a questionnaire and confirmed that you would be more likely to travel by bus having received this information.
