100th Visit for Schools Against Waste

100th Visit for Schools Against Waste

Milford Infants the 100th School Visited

Published: 31st Jan 2019

Our Schools Against Waste programme has now reached 100 schools!

Carymoor is working with Somerset Waste Partnership to offer the county’s primary schools a free half day to give pupils the chance to learn how our actions impact the environment. 

Launched at Wellsprings Primary School in Taunton last February, Schools Against Waste visited its 100th school, Milford Infants in Yeovil, recently. We’re aiming to bring the programme to every primary school in Somerset.

Karen Bratcher from Milford Infants, said: “The children really enjoyed the visit and have been talking about recycling and reusing at home. We thought it was exceptional and spot on for the age of our children. We enjoyed the interactive games and songs!”

As well as whole school “Talking Rubbish” assemblies, our Schools Against Waste team run classroom activities linked to curriculum key stages, from turning food waste into compost through to exploring the impact of plastics. Plus we can spend time with staff to review your school’s current recycling and offer practical advice.

If your Somerset primary school would like to take a stand against waste, recycle more and take part in some FREE fun, interactive workshops then click here to find out more: www.carymoor.org.uk/trips/schools-against-waste

We're always on the look out for people with time to spare!

Whether that's the odd hour, a regular day or even a longer work experience placement, your time is very valuable to us. Our growing team of volunteers makes a vital contribution both at the centre and at events across the county.
