A group of Preparatory School eco-warriors highlighted the problem of global waste as part of a special assembly.
Rydal Penrhos’ Eco Committee held the event as part of the school’s support of Waste Week, and they particularly centred their address on the hugely important topic of plastic.
They also wanted to highlight the importance of reducing the amount of plastic and resources that we use every day and encouraged others to think about the amount of food which is left uneaten on their plates at lunchtime.
This has considerable impact for the environment, resources and money, especially when there are so many people around the world who are short of food every day.
As part of Waste Week, the Eco Committee also ran two competitions for the Prep Department – one to find out ten facts hidden around the school about waste and the second, to make a reusable bag out of a t-shirt.
Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Our Eco Committee do so much good not only with projects around our wonderful part of the world at Rydal Penrhos, but also in highlighting strong global issues.
“It is essential that our young children are made aware of their immediate environment and the big topics from across the world on a consistent basis, and I would like to thank our wonderful teacher Julie Woodthorpe and our outstanding Eco Committee for their ongoing efforts.”
