Lest we forget

To mark the centenary since the end of the First World War, and as part of our remembrance activities, the Green Champions used over 400 old CD’s that had been donated to school.

After spraying them red and black, they used a chicken wire frame and tie wraps to create a large red poppy. The Green Champions then helped each class to replicate the process. Once completed these were put up on display around the school and one will be used as the Carr Hill wreath in the town centre on the 11th.


We are proud to announce that the latest group of budding  Green Champions have now been recruited. Their first job was to carry out an Environmental Audit to see what practices we already have in place to promote environmental awareness within our community and look after our school grounds:

¨ Paper recycling within classrooms

¨ Compost from school kitchen & snack time fruit

¨ Bottle top collection scheme

¨ Battery collection scheme

¨ No more polystyrene ice cream tubs in school kitchen

¨ Re useable plastic cups now used for school milk instead of cartons and straws.

Following on from these successes our latest campaign is plastic pens! We are now a drop off point for the Writing Instruments Recycling Programme, sponsored by Bic and Terracycle. We will be recycling all plastic writing pens, highlighters and whiteboard pens within school where they will be used to make things such as watering cans and pencils.





The safety of our children is extremely important to us at Carr Hill. Our Road Safety Awareness Week has highlighted some of the key points we think are crucial to ensuring that children, parents and the local community can work together to help to keep the environment safe for all.
