Bin the plastic!

A Bridgnorth primary school has joined a wider initiative within the town to cut down on plastic use. St Leonards are linking the drive with their cross-curricular topic of Extreme Environments within lessons, as well as describing their actions on their Geography Genius website.

Assistant head Hazel Coleman explains, “We asked children to bring in lunchboxes that have no single-use plastic content throughout February. We also had a school sssembly to share our ideas of what we can use instead, led by Alison Wakeman, the ‘Bee Lady’.

“We also involved our school kitchen in reducing their use of plastic. We’re running a whole-school competition to design a single-use plastic free lunch in a lunchbox, with prizes from our PTA, Friends of St Leonards (FOSLs). We’re also taking part in an inter-school competition.”
