January 2011 - Collecting Rubbish

Mrs Ray's class has been very busy collecting rubbish around the village. Mr Lee Oliver from Cadw Cymru'n Daclus came to talk about the importance of recycling. Everyone had special gloves and sticks to pick litter up and we went to the park - not to play but to work! All sorts of things were found including car parts, sunglasses and a football! A great time was had by all!

26 November 2010 - Service

Thank you to Sam, Magi, Catrin and Lois from Year 6 for holding a whole school service on the Green School activities. We all enjoyed the reading of the poem Y Gerdd Werdd by Gwyneth Glyn.

Each class has a kitchen caddy to compost their fruit waste after playtime..

Looking After The Birds

The Nursery and Reception class, as well as Years 1, 2,3 and 4 have been busy making bird food during this cold spell. The birds were very grateful!

Environmental Art Workshop

Gwynedd's Bio-diversity Officer came to the Urdd to give an environmental art workshop. Everyone enjoyed making their small habitats in a box.

The Green/Eco Committee

The Green/Eco committee has been established at the school to promote the principles of the Green School Charter for Gwynedd and Môn.

The committee will meet on a regular basis to discuss Eco matters and to make decisions.

We wish them all the best in this important work.

The prinipal aim of the scheme is to provide a framework whereby schools are assisted to adopt environmentally protective policies and activities which have a central role in daily life at the school and to:

  • Raise awareness of the need to protect their environment
  • Be more economical in our use of the environment and prevent pollution in our area
  • Work together to improve our environment

The scheme will assist the school to look at the environment through:

  • Waste reduction
  • Energy saving and natural resources
  • Pollution reduction and prevention

The School has since 2006, been accredited the bronze award for schools.
The award was gained through focussing on the following Thematic activities:

Waste reduction

  • Identify their location.

  • Send parents a copy of the poster, attached to a circular which will be distributed in any case

Waste reduction

Ensure that re-cycling is implemented as a matter of course within the school. Use the Council’s blue walls as well as the Antur Waunfawr Service.

Energy Saving

Sensors have been installed in some classes that recognize if the class is empty

Energy Saving and Natural Resources
