Green School News
Our new Litter Patrol got underway this week despite the downpours of rain. Thanks to the many volunteers from 1stand 2nd Year “many hands will make light work”.
The Litter Patrol will clean up after lunch break every day and will actively recycle the rubbish into the correct bins Recycle or General Waste. They will visit the student and staff canteens to collect the organic food waste like fruit peels and tea bags to bring it to the compost bins. Students will also ensure that used ink cartridges from the computer rooms, classrooms and offices go to the special Ink Cartridge Recycle Box in the Hallway.
Good luck to all the students involved in helping to make Cabra Community College a Green School!
